The Time Travelin Texican


Episode 1 – It’s the 1500s, the Spanish bump into the Texas Coast and meet some of the people already here

May 21, 2020

Welcome to the official Episode 1 of The Time Travelin’ Texican.  In Episode 1, I take a look at early European exploration, including a brief glance at the Portuguese, and how the Spanish ended up sending Columbus to find a new route to Asia.  Instead of India, he landed on the Bahamas.  Episode 1 also talks about the early Spanish exploration of the Gulf Coast, including the ill-fated trip of  Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, who ended up almost accidentally exploring the Trans-Pecos region.  Episode 1 also briefly discusses the Jumano and Apache Indians.  
Thanks for listening and God bless y’all
Look for the next episode on Wednesday May the 27th….
