Current Listen: 1776 by David McCullough
I’ve started on a long-time “must listen”– 1776 by popular historian and biographer David McCullough. Should be interesting to hear where the shades of bias fall… there’s no such thing as absolute objectivism, and that was a such a complicated time, which is all too often reduced to a really basic good/evil battle.
One disc into the abridged version, and I’m enjoying McCullough’s sympathetic writing tone and his soothing speaking voice. He sounds so trustworthy– I probably will be a softer judge on the work because of it.
