Erasmus Darwins of Massachusetts
and also a pod on Beringia
Over a hundred children in Massachusetts between 1800 and 1850 were named after Darwin. Not Charles Darwin, but his grandfather Erasmus. This says something remarkable about the interests and reading habits of regular people in early America -- especially rural people. Posted a 16-minute video about that, and also a History in 7 pod on Beringia today.
