When it comes to interesting bits of American history, it is taxing to top MIâ€¦ Long before it was even a state, before there was even a US, this was a fascinating part of the world.
This is the region where various indigenous tribes met, to either barter or wage war, and later it was a connection point between Canada and the US.
The whole reason I started our podcast was just to collect all the interesting bits of local lore and legend from the Ann Arbor part of the state. Things really started to take off once I started doing more research on the history of cannabis in the Ann Arbor area, then not only did I find a lot of fantastic material, however I started to get more popular, just because cannabis is such a sizzling topic here in Ann Arbor! One of the local Ann Arbor cannabis dispensaries even started sponsoring our show, and that has really been a shot in the arm for our self confidence. There are a lot of podcasts out there and it is taxing to sit out, even in the comparatively small pond that is Ann Arbor, MI, then you would suppose that I don’t have a lot of local competition, however there are really over 100 podcasts that come from Ann Arbor, and twelve of them have to do with cannabis! That’s a lot of fierce competition, however our series on the history of cannabis cultivation in Ann Arbor is getting more popular every week, so maybe I have turned a corner.
