    The Guinea Pig Girls Try to Save The Post Office

    The Guinea Pig Girls Try to Save The Post Office

    The Guinea Pig Girls Try to Save The Post Office. Learn about the history of the United States Postal Service (USPS) and how you can continue to support USPS. Especially with this upcoming election, we need a functional, sustainable USPS now more than ever. 

    Sources from YouTube:
    How the Post Office Made America by Wendover Productions
    Rise and Fall of the USPS by Business Insider

    Online Articles with USPS Facts:
    “11 Things Your Local Post Office Wants You to Know” by Michelle Ullman (BobVila.com)
    “Fun Facts About the Postal Service” Dec, 19, 2016 (MSN.com)
    “Top Thirteen Things You Should Know About the U.S. Postal Service” (facts.usps.com)

    Update:
    In this episode, Susannah briefly mentions pop supergroup, The Postal Service, saying they no longer existed.
    However, a recent fun fact from their Wikipedia page (and for a great cause):  "On October 6, 2020, The Postal Service created new social media accounts for the band and teased an announcement for the following day. The announcement was a mock video conference featuring several musicians and celebrities urging people in the United States to vote in the November election."

    PO Box 658
    Key West, FL 33041
