John Quincy vs. The Sun, The South & The Mole People

Solar Eclipses, The Gag Rule, and The Return to the Hollow Earth

Listen now:

In this episode, we look at John Quincy Adams’s dangerous love of astronomy—particularly solar eclipses—in a story first covered here in the post “Solar Eclipse Tips from John Quincy Adams.”

Then we share some exciting updates about John Quincy Adams and the hollow earth theory, a story covered in our Season 1 episode “John Quincy Adams vs. the Internet” and later expanded in the article “John Quincy Adams and the Mole People Myth.”

And finally we chat with the incredible Bob Crawford about his new podcast Founding Son: John Quincy’s America, and Adams’s epic battle with the Southern slavocracy over the Gag Rule.
