    My guest today is Michael Meyer. He took a wide route to the story of Benjamin Franklin’s remarkable afterlife, starting when Meyer was sent to China as one of its first Peace Corps volunteers. Beginning with The Last Days of Old Beijing, he authored three critically-acclaimed reported books set there, as well as numerous stories that appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, Time, Smithsonian, and on This American Life. A Guggenheim Fellow and Whiting Award winner, Meyer has also received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the New York Public Library’s Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, MacDowell, and the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in Italy.
    The topic is his book Benjamin Franklin’s Last Bet: The Favorite Founder’s Divisive Death, Enduring Afterlife, and Blueprint for American Prosperity.
    In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:
    The incredible story of Benjamin Franklin’s parting gift to the working-class people of Boston and Philadelphia—a deathbed wager that captures the Founder’s American Dream and his lessons for our current, conflicted age. Jump in!

Very good

Being a big fan from his program to his books. I really enjoy his podcast’s. Not being one for a lot of words I find them Informative and thought provoking. I also find that when I start to drift I will hear an episode to help me take pause and recenter.
