Yes readers, you have one slightly embarrassed editor, as I have been asked to share this video and it's all about what Susie knows - how islands were named!
Actually, I am honored to share this because working with Josh Todd, Alex Hammond and Glenn Curry on the 6th Episode of The River, Living the St. Lawrence WPBS was a complete delight!
I have attached all six episodes and I am sure you will enjoy them as much as I do. Please share the links with your friends, to let everyone share in the knowledge of the River.
