Thank you to our podcast sponsor: 

In this episode of the Experience We-Ha Podcast, Jeff Lovanio and Ryan Keating talk West Hartford history with the executive director of the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society, Jennifer Matos. How much do YOU know about the founding father of the American English language? Jenn gives us a little history lesson about Noah Webster and the original dictionary, the Blue-Backed Speller, and the great signature events the organization hosts throughout the year including the upcoming War of the Words at Congregation Beth Isreal. She also tells the story behind the statue in Blue Back Square – and the deal with Noah’s broken finger.  

Tickets for War of the Words are still available and you can get them HERE!

  • Jeff, I have listened to a few of your podcasts. I know people in the town do tune in. Would it be possible for you to feature The West Hartford Women’s Chorale? We are celebrating 15 years as a non-audition women’s community chorale. Currently we have 90 singers, but we started with 14 women and an idea. I think we have a story to tell. Take a look at us on WHWChorale.org.
    Let me know what you think.
