How the post office created America

I needed an uplifting story, and in The Revolutionary Post, I was educated and delighted.

I have never heard exactly how the post office came about. Like everyone else, I knew Ben Franklin was largely responsible for the original post office, but I didn’t realize how revolutionary it truly was, how enabling news dissemination was key to its mission, and especially the important role it played in helping American states to become a united nation.

I always love 99 Invisible, but this one is especially good.

I think I’m going to pick up Winifred Gallagher’s book because of this podcast.
