The Way of Improvement Leads Home Podcast co-host and producer Drew Hermeling is in Cambridge, Massachusetts this weekend. He is doing a presentation on the podcast at Sound Education: A Conference for Educational Podcasts and Listeners. Harvard University is hosting the event.
Here is a description of his session:
Seeing Early America Everywhere: Connecting Eighteenth-Century History to Unexpected Places with Andrew Hermeling (The Way of Improvement Leads Home)
@ Divinity Hall, Room 106
Colonial Puritans and Colin Kaepernick. Mount Vernon and Mar-a-Lago. Eighteenth-century midwifery and Obamacare. These may seem like odd connections, but in their efforts to prove that #everythinghasahistory, early American historians and podcasters John Fea and Drew Dyrli Hermeling regularly demonstrate that today’s hot-button issues have eighteenth-century antecedents. If you look close enough, you can see early America everywhere.
There are some great podcasters at Harvard this weekend. Here are a few that caught my attention:
Ed O’Donnell of In the Past Lane
Blair Hodges of the Maxwell Institute Podcast
Marshal Poe of New Books Network
Dan Carlin of Hardcore History
We will try to get Drew to write a report of the conference and post it here. Stay tuned.
