Your Heard Tell for Thursday, August the 11th, 2022 is turning down the noise of the news cycle and getting to the information we need to discern the time we live in by getting to what is really going on with the reaction to the Mar-a-Lago search warrant and the reaction to it. We’ll dig into what we do and don’t, what that does and doesn’t mean, and why neither “We got him this time” and “The republic is going to fall” are going to happen here…at least not today. Our guest today is a Heard Tell favorite, historian Sarah Stook is back talking about her latest presidential history article at Elections-Daily.com about dead presidents. Eight of them, to be exact, who all died in office of either assassination or illness. Sarah brings new light and perspective on history you do know, like the assassinations of Lincoln and JFK, the incredible true stories you might not know like how his own doctors probably killed Garfield, and the mysteries such as did mondane things like raw fruit and bad drinking water kill sitting US presidents. Sarah also answers the “what if” question of modern medicine would make any historical outcomes different. Also, a story you really need to see, a wild pitch at a Little League tournament game went from inches away from tragedy to one of the greatest moments in sportsmanship you will ever see. All that and more on this Thursday edition of Heard Tell.
