Join us at Intelligent Speech 2021!

Hear clever people talk. And me.

This year’s Intelligent Speech Conference is coming up soon – Saturday, April 24, 2021 – and I’m honored to be a part of it!

I will be on a panel with three other history podcasters – Jerry Landry of Presidencies of the United States, Dr. Lindsay Chervinsky of The Past, The Promise, The Presidency and author of The Cabinet: George Washington and the Creation of an American Institution, and Kenny Ryan of Abridged Presidential Histories. The conference theme is “escape” and we’ll be escaping from the male-dominated topic of the presidents to focus on some of the women who shaped the early presidencies.

Jess and I made a trailer about the conference you can listen to here:
