By Nancy Spannaus
Oct. 17, 2020—The October 5th interview which I did with American history blogger Adam Levinson is now available on podcast. It is entitled Nancy Spannaus on Hamilton. You can access the discussion at https://wsqfradio.com/statutes-stories/.
Levinson runs the blog https://statutesandstories.com, which uses analysis of the law to illuminate American history, especially in the 18th and 19th centuries. He is a self-described fan of Alexander Hamilton, and has published a considerable number of posts on Hamilton’s contributions to building our nation based on his research. Of course, the lawyer Hamilton was responsible for a great number of laws during his tenure at the Treasury.
Of special note is his series arguing that Hamilton likely wrote the cover letter which the Constitutional Convention sent to Congress at the conclusion of its work.
WSQF radio, based in Key Biscayne, Florida, airs a weekly show hosted by Levinson, which is then archived as a podcast on the station’s website.
The hourlong discussion between Levinson and myself covered a broad range of aspects of Hamilton’s work, including its relevance to the economic crisis which we are experiencing today. I encourage you to listen to it, and hopefully find the inspiration to read my book, Hamilton Versus Wall Street: The Core Principles of the American System of Economics.
The book can be purchased at https://www.iuniverse.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/788568-Hamilton-versus-Wall-Street, or any other online book seller, such as Amazon.
