Hey girls, Your show came up on my feed on Castbox as a show trending so I clicked on it and by chance the first episode listed was on Adelphia. I just listened and it was pretty accurate. Believe it or not, I currently live in Coudersport (pronounced Cow-der-sport). I was relocated here in 2015 for my job. Prior to this I had never even heard of this place. When I say it's "very rural" I'm talking nearest Walmart is 1 hr, 15 min away. The nearest Target is in Williamsport which is about 2 hrs away. Just to give you an idea. I had no clue places like this still existed. They actually just built a Dollar General, 4 miles from an existing one, and along with parking spaces they installed horse and buggy hitching posts. I'm not joking. Anyway, apparently this little town in a county of a little over 2,000, used to be pretty booming, thanks in part to John Rigas. Years ago, there actually used to be a JC Penny's! However, after Adelphia shit the bed the town has gone downhill, dieing a slow death, year by year. It really is a shame because the opinions of most people that grew up here blame the whole debacle on the sons. They say John was actually a really nice guy that just got caught up in the middle of all this shit, that he really wasn't clear on what his sons were up to. He was like 90 when he went to jail! He's out now due to an early release since he is supposedly dieing of cancer. The family seems to be making a comeback with another small cable/internet/phone company called Zito. That is who I have my internet with. We are so remote that Dish, DirectTv, etc. do not have signals out here. I just thought I would drop you guys a line because it's very strange I would stumble across this. No one ever knows where Coudersport is when I tell them where I live, let alone have heard of Adelphia and the Rigas's. Good luck and Happy Holidays to you guys! Karla
