Every Governor of our state makes history, but there have been very few who know their history as well as Connecticut’s current governor Edward M. "Ned" Lamont.”
In this very special episode, Mary Donohue and Walt Woodward, along with Connecticut Explored publisher Elizabeth Normen and producer Patrick O'Sullivan went to the state capitol to talk with Governor Lamont about a speech – and now audio essay he recorded for this podcast – titled “100 Years of Fake News and Real and Fake Wars.”
In an era when Americans are challenged to separate fact from fiction in a myriad of different media, the Governor’s message is a kind of cautionary tale for all of us. And, as you’ll see, it reflects some keen and insightful thinking from a governor who takes his history seriously.
