Searching for the epic article from the Analog episode...
I'm looking for some assistance from the community! Does anyone know where I can find the story that starts the 2nd hour on the Analog episode about the man who was stranded in the cave and sent out a message in a geode that was found by a sailor. According to Analog, it was from a West Virgina publication in Sept. 17 1886. I have tried searching for the date, the man Thomas Parsons, the title of the article A Strange Discovery, the name of the sailor William Haley, the origin of the man Machias Maine, and lots of combinations of keywords and I can’t find it anywhere online! Any help locating the original article would be so appreciated! I'm trying to write a song that plays off the story and I'm damn near ready to transcribe the episode. Surely someone else has been searching and had more success than me?!
Did you search his Twitter feed where he posts the article clippings? Or perhaps you are trying to find the article from the original source. At any rate, please post here if you happen to find the article and I will let you know if I find it first.
I have spent the past couple days watching some of the videos on his new YT channel and it is simply fantastic!
I did scroll through his twitter a little bit but I could definitely go deeper haha. I'm usually really good at finding things through keywords but this article is definitely buried in the algos. I will check out the youtube! Thanks for the tip!
