Clay and David offer a heartfelt thank you to 1776 Club members and share email responses to show #1245 This Thing of Darkness. They also discuss future plans for episodes, including wrapping up the Jefferson 101 series. David goes "off" when Clay tries to pass himself off as an ambivalent person.
The 1776 Club includes bonus material and unlimited access to the episode archive which, when completed, will date back to the origins of the show in the early 2000s — about 15 years of the Thomas Jefferson Hour.
Your support keeps the show running and helps it grow. Please note that membership in the 1776 Club is not tax-deductible. To make a tax-deductible donation to The Thomas Jefferson Hour, Inc., visit our donate page.
