I thought I had lost my interest in early American history. It turns out, I lost interest in the hero-worship, myth making history writing of Esteemed White Male Historians. (I'm looking at you Joe Ellis and Ron Chernow.) I have grown quite fond of this new podcast: https://humservt.com, which reads and discusses a letter written by a woman in each episode. It is so much more human than what is written by what Alexis Coe calls "the thigh men of American history" (for their obsession with the "virility" of the founding fathers).
