Repost: Ep. 65: Cheerio, My Dude: George Melville Boynton

Happy Friday, folks! We're taking a break this week so thought we'd remind you of our favorite galavanting explorer-hopeful! It's been a year since he debuted on the pod, along with our theme music! So take a minute to dig into the nonsense and reassure yourself that if George could do all this, you can do anything. 

Wanna hear the wackiest story of a great explorer who…well, never explored much of anything? Come listen to Shannon tell Emma about George M. Boynton, the man who walked a lot, talked a big game, and got Teddy Roosevelt to love him. It seriously is crazy the amount this man got away with in life. Grannies, Chad, and Everest make appearances this week, so come get your fill of some nonsense. And enjoy our BRAND NEW INTRO MUSIC courtesy of our lovely friend, Tom (not the Cryptking)!
