You’re History, Episode II: Roanoke & Chowing Down on Ron Chernow
Our resident history wonks John Foster and Traci Hoffman like big books and they cannot lie. So when Ron Chernow writes an 1,100-page biography of President Ulysses Grant, they don’t just read it. They want to tell you all about it!
This time, they’re discussing:
- Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. (Yes, they discuss the musical. No, neither John nor Traci try to sing anything from it.)
- The Secret Token: Myth, Obsession, and the Search for the Lost Colony of Roanoke by Andrew Lawler
- Grant by Ron Chernow
- My Dear Hamilton by Laura Kaye and Stephanie Dray Listen
Listen and learn who wrote John’s favorite presidential memoir and why John White was a terrible grandfather. And come back for more You’re History every month.
