Bay State Ocean State
My friend Jack Casey joins the Bob Davis Podcast in Bay State Ocean State. Last in the series of podcasts about New England Travel in Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010.
Loving New England
Most importantly I am surprised at how much I like New England.
From New York To Maine
Two Friends Get Together To Podcast
Consequently when I got together with friends in Massachusetts it’s natural we’d do a podcast.
Go Way Back
First Rule Of Fight Club…
Secondly we don’t do what every other radio person does when they’re on a podcast.
We Don’t Talk About Fight Club
Talk about radio!
Growing Up In New England
To clarify Casey grew up in Rural Upstate New York and has spent many years living and working all over New England.
History And Telling Stories
Industrial Revolution Tour In Reverse
As you know I’ve been heading east traveling across the areas most effected by the march of the Industrial Revolution, which began in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
After that we’re finally here in the Ocean State, where it all started.
Not All A Party
On the other hand the history of this region isn’t all balloons and birthday cake.
We’ll explain in Bay-State-Ocean-State-Bob Davis Podcast 1010.
And The Clams, Lobster and Ice Cream
Ate A Lot
Certainly I ate a lot during my visit. Foods I have not been eating since I’ve been on the protein diet.
Who Can Resist?
But who can resist baked beans and Italian sausage, a local staple. Lobster. Clams and Fries. Blueberry Pancakes and gallons of coffee.
Starving Myself Now
Finally now I am back on the road and starving myself!
History Is Everywhere
To sum up and in all seriousness. The history here really is everywhere.
Just driving through small towns becomes a huge education.
Going Back To The 1600’s
In conclusion it’s just hard to believe people settled out here in the mid to late 1600’s.
Factories and Mills In The Late 1700’s
Mills and factories started producing goods in the mid to late seventeen hundreds and early eighteen hundreds.
Twentieth Century Powerhouse
Furthermore by the twentieth century this part of the country was hitting on all eight cylinders, making all kinds of products for the world.
Jack’s got some family stories about working in the mills and the pride of work and place that was so important in this part of the country.
