We are coming up on the anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald , a shipwreck many people know about. But do you know about the Mataafa , or the Socrates , or the two French minesweepers that went missing after leaving port in what is now modern day Thunder Bay?


With the Gales of November upon us, Duluth News Tribune editor Andrew Krueger, who accidentally became our resident shipwreck writer and historian, joins us this week to talk about a few of the Lake Superior and Great Lakes shipwrecks you may not know about. The crew also sneaks in some ghost ship chatter, including the mysterious whereabouts of the 1902 freighter the Bannockburn .


What we are into this week: The Netflix TV show “Longmire ,” the Pressroom Podcast (that’s what people say when they’ve missed a handful of recordings), season two of “ Stranger Things ,” and beach glass hunting.

Tune in every week to hear Duluth News Tribune reporters Brady Slater, Christa Lawler and Tom Olsen talk about current Duluth and Northland happenings. You can email us at podcast@duluthnews.com, call our podcast line at 218-382-NEWS or follow us on Facebook. The podcast is produced by Samantha Erkkila.
