The Best !

Wow , I loved this! As a kid I always felt like history was boring but not anymore. I just learned a lot and it was fun too!

Love KFI and this is storytelling is genius

Jane and team, fantastic work. Great way to teach the kids (and learn) about the Pilgrims on our long thanksgiving weekend drive! Can’t wait for more subject matter to be covered. One question to clarify-was the WNAT female morning show host a transvestite man?
