Chapter 28: Walt Whitman, featuring James Adomian

Chapter 28: H.G. Wells (Paul F. Tompkins) welcomes Walt Whitman (James Adomian) to the podcast to discuss his work, but then this happened instead.

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.
