7:10am: Peterson Toscano, professional podcaster, author, bible-scholar, climate advocate, world traveler, performer, on the Summer 2021 edition of ‘Susquehanna Life Out Loud.’  We’ll discuss the magazine/podcast articles about volunteers going big renovation projects in small towns in the Susquehanna Valley, including a perfectly restored carousel in Pottstown, and the incredible story of the East Broad Top Railroad in Huntingdon County.    In addition to Susquehanna Life Out Loud, Peterson is curator of a nascent on-line arts series featuring essayists, poets, a visual artist, and even a circus performer from four different continents.
