Hi all,

Well-Trained Mind Press and Jim Weiss proudly present a new three-part audio series:

Electoral Apocalypses: How America Survived Three Elections Even More Divisive Than 2016. It's for teens and adults.


Here's the description:


In the midst of bitterly contested elections, some claim that America has “never been more divided,” and that the sky is about to fall. In the spirit of classical education, Well-Trained Mind Press offers you a historically informed perspective.

This three-part audio series sheds light on the stormy present by exploring the turbulent past. Through the surprising tales of three past elections, master storyteller Jim Weiss explores the flexibility of America’s democratic system, and the resilience of its people.

These memorable episodes make ideal listening for voters (and voters-to-be), lovers of history, and all concerned citizens.

Episode 1 available now at the limited-time price of $3.25! Future episodes coming soon.

Episode 1: Poison Pens and Pistols at Dawn: Jefferson, Hamilton, Burr, and the Election of 1800

A brand-new nation faces its greatest crisis yet: as the beloved George Washington leaves the White House, rival factions try to set the course for America’s future. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and Aaron Burr get down and dirty, in an election that features one shocking moment after another. Will the American Revolution devour itself? Or will the young republic find a way through?


For ages 12 to Adult

Running Time: 41 minutes

So cheer's been way, way worse than this.

Of course, Facebook and Twitter didn't exist back then...So yeah, on second thought: all is lost.

Episode Two, "A House Divided: The Election of 1860 and the Coming of the Civil War," is now available!
When people say that politics has never been this sharply divided, I just show them a picture of the casualties after the Battle of Gettysburg. I win a lot of arguments but I don't have many friends anymore. #WorthIt

Good job teaching history to your students.  We live in uncertain times right now but we've through it before.  Encourage your students to work together and come up with solutions.
