Download Episode #51 On-Demand

This week, we broadcast from the road as we journey in search of Civil War history in Western Maryland. From Sharpsburg to Frederick, history buffs have plenty to gain by taking a road trip through Maryland’s Appalachian foothills. Since we’re broadcasting from the road, this episode’s sound quality will sound a little rougher, but please excuse the noise; those are just the sounds of roadtripping…

Later in our program, we bring you the best haikus about potholes sent in by our listeners from across the country. Also, our Travel Q&A segment discusses five ways to get into National Parks at a discount (or even free).

Join us for classic commercials from the golden age of radio in The Travel Archive, as well as more new comedy On the Lighter Side. It’s another hour of roadtripping, travel, and fun on Episode 51 of Road Trip Radio!
