Archaeologist and historian Edward L. Bell joins ‘All Your Days’ to talk about his recent book, a history — and a mystery (and he's come the furthest in solving it) — tied to stories of slaves in the Northeast U.S. and what we think we know about bastions of abolition. A lot. Heavy talk. Good talk. Needed talk. Ed and I go back as musical friends as well, and I learn a lot about this person I’ve known for many years, including his parents’ early days around Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, and our shared connection to Ferron’s incredible songwriting.

Clips in this episode:

  1. Shadows On A Dime (Ferron, ‘Not A Still Life: Live At The Great American Music Hall’ - 1992)
  2. Classroom Scene (‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’ - 1989)
