Vox Almanac is going on a road trip


We’re going on a road trip. You may have seen
other Vox Almanac episodes about the Concorde — the snoot would droop — or bowling or medieval snails. We’re trying something new. We’re gonna be doing five
episodes on a theme. I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at how roads shape
our history and our culture and just about everything that we do. I found a
lot of stories. It’s taken me to the suburbs, to New Mexico — Cow crossing the street. That cow just crossed Route 66 — To New York City in the 1800s and a lot of other
places. So I hope you’ll join us for this season of Almanac. It’s all about road
trips and I have one request of you: Can you help me name this friend that I
found on the road? I’ll be looking for a good name in the
comments and you’ll see it in a future episode of this series. Alright, thanks for watching and have a safe trip.

    Why not Fred? I know the name may seem a little lackluster but it gets straight to the point and is most certainly a name

    My family has always called these “The Googly Man”. When my daughter was small we would actually pull into parking lots and pretend to fight the Googly Man.

    CORCORAN CHANKOOWASHTAY JACK
    Corcoran is an Irish name that means "ruddy-faced"
    Chankoowashtay is a Native American name wich means "good road"
    whereas Jack rhymes with Almanac so that's fair

    Pretty sure its not THE Concorde but just Concorde…the compromise you get when Frenchmen and Brits design a plane together.
