Where is Our Podcast?

Interviewing LT and Merriman

Where has our podcast gone?

Hello podcast world! It turns out that we have had a good handful of people ask where out podcast has gone. So, here I am to tell you that it hasn’t gone anywhere! It’s still living on iTunes (though I think we are supposed to call this Apple Music now) and FREE to download and subscribe to–you’re already doing both, right? We just happen to be on a hiatus because Kris took on a broadcasting role with the LA Chargers back in August. This role is fantastic and he is having the best time every week but it leaves him with approxamitely 23 additional weekly minutes to be a dad, husband and Penn State fan (eye roll over here from this Michigan girl). Since that time is valuable to us as a family, we’ve decided to put the pod on hold until after the football season–which is actually soon! Wouldn’t it have been so much better if I wrote this back at the beginning of September? In the meantime, here’s a photo gallery of some of the awesome experiences he’s had thus far (you might recognize LaDainian Tomlinson and Shawne Merriman in some of my fan girl photos). When we return, we plan to hit in topics that include traveling as a solo female, marrying into a different culture, how the political landscape might affect you as a traveler, and Africa! As always, we really appreciate everyone’s interest and support–we are so glad that you’ve enjoyed what we have put together so far.

Japanese Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC

Cherry Blossom Jefferson Memorial

On our first podcast, we chatted about the history of the famous Japanese cherry blossoms in Washington, DC. We wanted to share a small photo gallery with you that highlights Eliza Scidmore (without her influence the cherry blossom tree gift may have never happened), the resistant women from the 1938 Cherry Blossom Rebellion, and bathers enjoying the Tidal Basin in 1922. Some of the history we referenced about the cherry blossom rebellion came from the National Park Service. The NPS also has an excellent timeline (with more photos) of the history of the Washington, DC Japanese cherry blossoms here.

 

We hope you enjoyed the podcast. Questions? Email us at scuttabout@gmail.com
