-I watched the Ken Burns documentary of Ben Franklin (twice) & it was absolutely fascinating. There's so much interesting info & details coupled w/ beautiful illustrations & Burns' familiar, soothing narrative. It's a treat for the mind, eyes & ears. I highly recommend it. Also, it's free to view anytime on the PBS website.
Phenomenal American History Podcast. I'm learning more than I ever did the public education system. We kids of the 80's-90's were truly failed by bureaucratic complacency.
Such a great episode! Indigenous languages are the key to understanding the full breadth of human experience, ability and complexity. Thanks for the great episode!
I started to listen to hear about Ben Franklin . it is not about Ben Franklin.
