Chapter 2: Robert Louis Stevenson, featuring Andy Daly

Chapter 2: The sound is terrible on this one. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. There's still lots of good stuff!

Thanks to The Time Travel Mart and 826LA. 

826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the success of its network of eight writing and tutoring centers. 826 centers offer a variety of inventive programs that provide under-resourced students, ages 6-18, with opportunities to explore their creativity and improve their writing skills. We also aim to help teachers get their classes excited about writing. Our mission is based on the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. Last year our tutoring centers — located in Ann Arbor, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC — served over 29,000 students.

  • That was great, worth the long wait, and it sounded fine. If it was worse than that initially then kudos to the person who worked this long on it (whether Mr Wells or otherwise). Really enjoyed the references to midges and the lighthouse engineering side of his family.
