American Epistles tells our history through the letters, journals, and diaries of "ordinary" Americans.

Thrilling & eye-opening
WOW. I thought I knew a little something about American history, but this podcast is already proving me wrong in the best sort of way. AE's compelling, NPR-style episodes feature letters written by "every day" Americans throughout our nation's past, bringing major events and time periods to life. Now, thanks to American Epistles, whenever I think of Pearl Harbor I will always remember Sgt Ann Bruchard; when thinking of the Great Migration, I'll also remember the words of the unnamed Chicagoan. This is the perfect podcast for students, families, and above all, anybody (like me!) interested in a deeper, truer, more vibrant version of American history. I can't wait for January 5's launch!
I love this podcast
This podcast is very good educational for kids like me. I like the music for it, too!
It is so nice to relive American history through the eyes of everyday people, without agendas and political bias’s. The content is exactly what is needed for today’s climate. Everyone needs to listen to this. Bravo!
