Norton I, Emperor of the United States (feat. Song Salad)

He was born Joshua Abraham Norton, but to San Fransisco in the mid 1800s, he was Norton the First, Emperor of The United States and Protector of Mexico. Sure, it was a made up title and he held no actual authority, but that didn’t stop the citizens of San Fransisco (and one King of Hawaii) from showing him reverence. This episode dives into the history of Emperor Norton – including some of his more prophetic decrees – and then we collaborate with the AWESOME Shannon and Scott from the Song Salad Podcast
