First Broadcast September 30, 2021
We’re back and while we can’t claim to be better than ever, we’re slathering ourselves in Cheez Whiz for a very special trip to Philadelphia and Carpenters’ Hall! We won’t say that host Rob Crean is eager to get out of town for our fourth episode but if self-proclaimed genius and unimpeachable role model Ben Franklin is to be believed, the best way to find success in Boston is to leave.
- Michael Norris, Executive Director at Carpenters’ Hall in Philadelphia.
- Barbara Clark Smith, author of The Freedoms We Lost and curator at the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
This event is supported in part by the New England Women’s Club Fund at the Boston Foundation.
Tea Party Tonight is our first-of-its-kind history comedy talk show. Host Rob Crean welcomes special guests to discuss history, give a unique spin on current events, and play some very stupid games.
And hey, while you’re at it, take a look at this scientifically randomized clip from a past episode, why not?
