The Past is Everywhere

From Radiolab’s episode “Detective Stories” from season 2:

I guess the neat thing about all of these tales is, you think when you’re gonna tell a story from the past the sensible place to go is you go to the library, you go to a fossil, you go to a ruin.  But the truth is, you can go anywhere.  The blood coursing through your veins tells you, “i have a story for you.” Same with a little bit of garbage that sits next to an ancient shoe you pluck the piece of paper and Jesus is talking to you, literally. There are clues about to the past everywhere.  And If it’s a knock on your door and you decide to open the door and take a look, who knows what you will find and who knows where you will go.”
