Laura, Krysta and Dean discuss the Bloody Benders of Kansas. How four people made a murderous 'family' that waylaid, robbed and killed many who stopped for supplies at their store along the Independence Fort Scott Trail. Their eventual discovery and the subsequent investigation revealed multiple bodies along their property which became known as Hell's Half Acre. But before they discuss these 1871 ne'er-do-wells, Krysta gives us some weird facts about Thanksgiving, including how Ben Franklin wanted the Turkey to be the National Symbol of the United States. Then they go back to 16th century Scotland to investigate the folklore of the Sawney Bean clan. These Scottish highwaymen, murderers and cannibals supposedly terrorized an area near Girvan in Ayleshire Scotland in the 1600's.

Franklin preferred the more “dignified” turkey, and tried to convince Founding Fathers to agree. Apparently they thought Ben was a senile old sentimentalist, and so they ignored him.

Darren Beattie of Revolver News joins Dinesh to talk about the Biden administration and the end of accountability. Dinesh also reveals how Ben Franklin's project to become a self-made man involved an elaborate program of moral self-improvement. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Walter Isaacson | Benjamin Franklin | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff of Organize 365 On Mondays, I will be posting a podcast recording of previously recorded book reviews. These are books that have impacted me that I want to share with you. In October, I dive into my favorite books about Washington, D. C., the White House, and Benjamin Franklin. I absolutely love history and think it has so much to teach us.  This week's book review is of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson. Ben Franklin is just such a fascinating human being. I listened to this 25 hour audible book. Every 15 years he was a different person - politician, editor, shopkeeper, diplomat, inventor, and scientist. He was able to make a major impact in each of these fields. We are blessed to know so much about him because he was a devoted keeper of a personal journal.  When I read about leaders, I try to see what I can apply to my own life. Even so many years ago, Benjamin Franklin had a mastermind. He was able to get great ideas from a wide variety of different people in diverse industries. You can also watch this as a video review on YouTube.  Follow me on Goodreads! If you are interested in trying Audible for audiobooks, you can get a free trial with my affiliate link.

Einstein Said, "You Never Fail Until You Quit Trying." Turns Out He Was In Good Company. Welcome to October 11, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate kicking butt and an uncommon hero.  If you're running low on motivation these days, you're not alone.  Most of us think that successful people have some extra luck, but the truth is, they're just people who pushed past the failure.  Milton Hershey worked in a candy factory, but when he tried to make it on his own he failed - three times, before returning to the family farm. That didn't stop him from perfecting the recipe for milk chocolate.  Ben Franklin dropped out of elementary school.  Stephen King's first novel was rejected 30 times. And no one took Michael Jordan's dream seriously as a kid because he was short!  If you're feeling like a failure these days, you're in some very good company!  On National Kick Butt Day, get past the excuses and go kick some butt! Many brave Americans fought in the Revolutionary War, but the colonists did not fight alone.  Other European nations, who were not fond of the British, were willing to lend a helping hand.  One of the most prominent was Polish General Casimir Pulaski.  After being exiled from his homeland, where he fought against the Russian army, Pulaski made his way to Paris.  Here Benjamin Franklin recruited him for the war against Great Britain.  He became one of General Washington's most valuable field commanders and went on to win key battles for the Continental Army.  Pulaski saved hundreds of troops before he was fatally wounded in Savannah, Georgia. On General Pulaski Memorial Day, we celebrate the hero who stepped up for a country that wasn't even his own.   I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson.  Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

The transatlantic slave trade dominated in North America during the 17th and 18th centuries. But by 1808, a different slave trade came to dominate in the young United States, the domestic or internal slave trade.
 Joshua D. Rothman, an award-winning historian, Professor of History at the University of Alabama, and author of the book, The Ledger and the Chain: How Domestic Slave Traders Shaped America, leads us on an exploration of the United States' domestic slave trade and the lives of three slave traders who helped to define this trade.
