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.
