About The Route 66 Podcast & Scholarship Program

Welcome to The Route 66 Podcast Patreon Page!  My name is Anthony Arno, and over 20 years ago while teaching elementary school in New Jersey I had my students bicycle 2,000 miles in the back of the classroom aboard an exercise bicycle while learning all about Route 66 in realtime with the schools first computer connected to the Internet.

Since that time, I've launched the Route 66 Podcast, featuring talks with people living and working along America's most celebrated highway.  Past episodes feature conversations with individuals passionate about the road, pioneers interested in promoting and preserving Route 66, business owners, and noted authors interested in preserving historical accounts from the road.

Patreons interested in supporting The Route 66 Podcast are not only supporting monthly episodes featuring Route 66 podcasts, but they're also supporting The Route 66 Podcast Scholarship program which provides scholarships for students in grades K - 12 who are interested in preserving and promoting Route 66.
