Thank you, thank you thank you! A generous anonymous donor has put us over the top—the Historians Podcast 2017 fund drive has raised $3,600, that’s $100 more than our $3,500 goal for the year. www.gofundme.com/historians2017 will remain open for the rest of the year. However, we no longer will be asking for donations, at least until 2018. It’s a humbling experience to keep the podcast going thanks to donations from listeners, readers and friends. Best wishes to all of you.
