The perfect app for history lovers
For anyone interested in early American history, this app/podcast is for you. The interviews are engaging, the show notes/resources are superb, and the Ben Franklin's World community is a wonderful group of thoughtful listeners. As a history teacher, I highly recommend this app/podcast to teachers, students & anyone who is interested by Early American History.
Concurring with other reviewers thus far, this is a wonderful app/podcast. What I think is most valuable however is the line Liz walks between history for the general audience and the professional - a proverbial 'middle ground'. 😏
Great for History Lovers
I absolutely love diving into a different aspect of Colonial History every week. There are a lot of special guests whose names I recognize and it also provides me with excellent book recommendations in the process:)
