Ep. 9 On The Move: Nelly Bly, Henry Box Brown, All Around this World

Nelly Bly decides to travel around the world in less than 80 days, much like Philes Fogg, the fictional character from Jules Verne’s “Around the Wolrd in 80 Days”  Also Henry Brown escapes enslavement in a dramatic way, earning the nickname “Box” Brown, and he later finds a career on the stage.  Also, musician Chris Rodahaffer (Will Oldham/Bonnie Prince Billy) joins us for the song “I’ve Been All Around This World.”  Created by Mick Sullivan. Readings by Victoria Reibel and Jason Lawrence.  Oh Yeah, and Quiz Time!

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.
