Feb 10 2022 • 38 mins

This podcast begins our coverage of The Progressive Era. Jeananne has been mentioning "The Progressive Era" in several podcasts, and it is!

Learn how society is transformed during the Progressive Era and some of the public and private sector individuals who had a role in the transformation.

In part one we touch on Jacob Riis, Ida Tarbell, and settlement houses. We are joined by Katie Vogel, the Public Historian of the Henry Street Settlement in NYC.

We also will discuss Jane Addams, and Florence Kelley.

As usual, I do not want to give up too much in the description, but I do want to add the link and promo code I introduce in the podcast.
