Kristen and Jolenta dive into listener feedback about The Power of Positive Thinking. Plus, they call up Trysh Travis, cultural and literary historian in the Center for Women’s Studies at the University of Florida. Trysh helps the ladies put the book into historical context by explaining the aspirations and anxieties of readers in the 1950s. To learn more about Trysh’s research, head here.
