Buried in Our Past is a podcast about the histories all around us that have been lost to time. Surprising, exciting and sometimes peculiar, the series shares research unearthed by Westport Museum that offers a new way of looking at the past and rethinking the present. This podcast is a Verso Studios Community Partnership Podcast recorded at the Westport Library.
This debut episode features the true story of the first Thanksgiving with guest Greg Porretta, a Julliard-trained actor and Westport Museum board member.
