The C&D Canal as an Escape Route for the Underground Railroad is a podcast on how the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal provided an escape route for freedom seekers from the Chesapeake Bay region. In the podcast, I discussed my research on the use of the Canal as an escape route and to share individual stories of these escapes with podcaster Carl Suppa. The podcast is divided into four segments.
In the other podcast set, Robin Krawitz, president of the Underground Railroad Coalition of Delaware talks with Carl Suppa about people, events, and places in Delaware associated with the Underground Railroad in an eight-part series.
After Carl Suppa read my book, Stealing Freedom Along the Mason-Dixon Line: Thomas McCreary, the Notorious Slave Catcher from Maryland, he invited me back to the station to discuss Thomas McCreary and other slave catchers and kidnappers and their toxic contribution to the debate over slavery in the years leading up to the Civil War. The podcast will soon be added to the Delaware Timeline.
