Fascinating stories!

I love these wonderful stories of history. Everything Shane does is perfection, and this is no exception. Thank you for your detailed research & for sharing the history behind these locations.

PERFECT podcast

Every little thing is just perfect. I can’t recommend this podcast highly enough


This is a fun and informative podcast. Being a midwesterner and traveling to some of these places it is great to know obscure history. So much information you are never taught in school, but make people and places so much more interesting. Thanks Shane.


I love this podcast. Thank you very much.

I love this podcast. Shane really captures my childhood, going on vacations to my grandmothers home in Isabella, in the U.P. Accurate! We camped on Isle Royale, too. Well done!

Still great!


It’s free! The new Apple update is confusing, but this podcast is still free. “Subscription” only applies to early and exclusive episodes. I’ve been listening every week as normal; Great!!
