Ben Franklin PodCast

This is a great podcast about Benjamin Franklin I just found on the Museum of Science in Boston. I was just searching for BF on their site and found this. Only the first half of the podcast is about Ben. For some reason two interviews are on this file. The second one is about weather and evolution. So just listen to the first half of it.

Anyways; It is a great conversation about his achievement if you don't feel like reading. (like me!)

A funny thing about the Museum of Science I just found out. I found an article about them stating that they had the opportunity to have the "Benjamin Franklin; In Search of a Better World" but decided to take the starwars exhibit instead. I guess they decided that starwars would bring in more money. It is a shame that the exhibit has no place in Boston.
