This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re exploring the exciting and historically nerdy world of time capsules. The vessels meant to house our most precious artifacts sometimes yield unexpected surprises once opened decades down the road.
Such was the case with the recent discovery of 2 confederate-era time capsules extracted from a gigantic Robert E. Lee monument in Richmond last month. What was found within the 2 time capsules was not what historians expected. Tune in to hear how the 2 boxes were located, why 1 was perhaps an epic troll by the monument creators, and what each contained.
Then stick around to hear an unusual story about a time capsule in a car buried in 1957 by the residents of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Things didn’t quite go as planned when the time capsule car was unearthed 50 years later in 2007, but it made for an entertaining story nonetheless. Those Tulsans have a sense of humor.
And lastly, stick around to hear what we, the Carolina Snowflakes, would place in a time capsule of our own. What do we think most represents the era and climate we’re living in? And what would we want our future selves to remember about the important moments in our recent history?
Tune in to hear it all in this week’s historically nerdy and laugh-out-loud time capsule episode!
