Nutmeg Junction originally began as a cartoon created by J. Timothy Quirk and was called “In Torrington Today. The cartoon featured a trolley in Torrington, CT. In 2013 artist Jessica Ponticelli and Quirk expanded their cartoon idea to all of Connecticut and re-branded the concept as Nutmeg Junction. In 2015 the cartoon only appeared sporadically.
But life happens and the Nutmeg Junction cartoon lapsed though Quirk did bring back the trolley for a Crayon Diary short story that featured Little Poland, New Britain, CT.
Now in 2018 the idea of Nutmeg Junction becomes an entirely new concept: a radio show which will feature a trolley, though not a cartoon trolley as has been previously depicted.
The adventure begins in 2018
