Ben Franklin's World Will "Delight Your Brain"

ben_franklins_worldWhat's your favorite magazine? Mine is Mental Floss, a periodical that provides a "liberal arts education" between its covers.

On Friday, May 29, 2015, I grew to love Mental Floss even more because they published "19 History Podcasts to Delight Your Brain" and listed (and linked!) Ben Franklin's World under the "Politics and American History" section.

Here's what they said:


If early American history is your wheelhouse (or you want it to be), sample this show, which features historians and experts on specific, thoughtful topics. While BFW does delve into politics, I like when it veers into more personal stories, like the history of stepfamilies or the story of two women who lived as an openly married couple in the early 19th century.

Author Whitney Matheson referenced Episode 027 Lisa Wilson, A History of Stepfamilies in Early America and Episode 013 Rachel Hope Cleves, Charity and Sylvia: A Same-Sex Marriage in Early America.
