043 Liz Covart | The Present Always Colors How We View The Past


Listen Now!

Here’s the Recap:

I first heard about Liz Covart on The Podcast Producers hosted by Jessica Rhodes and Corey Coates. I really liked her take on some of the subjects she talked about on that show and wanted to find out more about her. Liz has a PhD in history and has a lot of interesting things to say about the Founding Fathers and early American history. On the show, we mostly talk about her background, her love for American history, and her podcast, Ben Franklin’s World. There is also a part where we geek out a little bit about Game of Thrones, so spoiler alert! Thanks for listening and don’t forget to subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher Radio.
