*CONTENT BEGINS AT 5:23-Charlie Daniels   13:55-Randolph Scott   19:08-Sir Archie In this episode I am going to talk western towns, cowboys, and horses. Don't worry, we are still in North Carolina. I will start out by telling you about a western style town near Statesville, where no car are allowed. It's horse or walking. Then I am going to give you the run down on a movie cowboy and Charlotte native named Randolph Scott. And lastly, I am going to tell you about an incredible horse who one could say, made the Kentucky Derby what it is today.

SOME DISASTERS

    *CONTENT STARTS AT 06:19 This episode is the first of it's kind on The NC Everything Podcast. First, I have an addition to make to my last episode on Bath and New Bern. I know you guys are ready to get away from the coast for a bit but bear with me. If you want to skip that, see the note at the top of this summary.     Next I will move into the episode's content. Now this started with a suggestion from Rip from Smithfield about an explosion. But then I decided to look at what other accidents have occurred around the state. There were far more than I could fit into a single episode, so if you know of one that I did not mention, it was not because I didn't find it important. I go over my criteria for my choices in the show.     The last thing I want to say is that I am not trying to make light or "cash in" on any tragedy. As I put this episode together, I learned about some upsetting events that I had never heard of, and I feel like these events and these people should not be lost to history and forgotten about.     Don't forget to subscribe wherever you listen to podcast and rate the show if you are able as any rating I get makes the show easier to find for those who are unaware.

BATH AND NEW BERN

BATH AND NEW BERN

2022-01-0138:19

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I decided that since this will be the first episode of the new year, I would cover the first towns North Carolina.  Bath was the very first incorporated town in NC followed just a few years later by New Bern.  Now because these are the first towns in what would become our great state, naturally, there will be some state firsts that occur here so keep an ear out for them.
