I have been a fan of podcasts for quite some time now – listening to everything from David Weinberger’s “Everything is Miscellaneous” series, to PotterCast and MuggleCast, Learning Italian, to grammar girl.
My new favorite is a thought-provoking weekly series called the Thomas Jefferson hour. Discussion topics are varied, informative and insightful – touching on life during Jeffersons era as well as his perspective on current events. I have recently become very interested in learning more about the “founding fathers” of our country – and this series is just what I was looking for. This is an ever-inspiring series that I highly recommend.

Humanities scholar and author, Clay S. Jenkinson, adopts the persona of Jefferson each week to comment on current events and answer questions you may have about Jefferson’s thoughts on any and all topics. Clay has portrayed Thomas Jefferson for more than two decades. He is the recipient of the National Endowment for the Humanities highest award, then called the Charles Frankel Award, for his humanities-based first person interpretation methodology.
