This episode is a special treat, an interview with Joseph McGill about his incredible labor of love, The Slave Dwelling Project. He shares with us his background, his motivations, and what it's really like to encounter children and adults as an educator and historic preservationist in the rarefied yet crucial field of preserving the history of the enslaved in a world that speaks almost exclusively about the plantation owners and enslavers of history. We talk about the places where genealogy and historic preservation cross paths, too. I know you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoy preparing for it, and as much as I enjoyed talking with Joe. This interview would not have been possible without the patronage of my 12 financial supporters at Patreon, by the way...imagine how many more interviews I could afford to do, how many more headsets I could afford to buy for my interviewees, if you joined that elite group!
