Ep. 11 Hitting the Road: Niagara – A Kids Listen Sweep Episode

It’s time for the July Kids Listen Sweep! This episode features the story of Annie Edson Taylor, who was the first person to successfully survive Niagara Falls in a barrel.
Also, how’d they even start building the first suspension bridge over Niagara? You might be surprised.
And if Cole Porter’s song “Don’t Fence Me In” doesn’t make you feel like “Hittin’ The Road,” what will?
Voices: Victoria Reibel and Mick Sullivan.
All Music and Instruments: Mick Sullivan.

This whole mess was my idea. I'm really in to music and I love history. I am the Manager of Youth and Family Programs at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, KY. I've curated exhibits about Lewis and Clark, created countless hours of history-focused programming, and shared some great times thinking, learning, talking, and laughing about the past and future with some great people - both adults and children.
