196: Meet Liz Covart: Historian, Podcaster, Reluctant Entrepreneur

Liz Covart is a professional historian and host of the wildly successful podcast Ben Franklin’s World. And I am not boasting about that, Liz gets triple the downloads that my show gets. She is a rockstar!

Liz holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of California, Davis, where she studied with 2-time Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Alan Taylor. Liz is a history lover and an historian of early America.

She started her podcast to connect fellow history lovers with the work of professional historians.

Liz believe that history is the key to understanding who we are and how we can affect a better future.

Everyone needs a “Liz” in their mastermind.

Liz comes at all of our discussions from a different point of view and her insights have become invaluable to each member of our mastermind.

I call Liz a reluctant entrepreneur because she comes from academia and yet her ideas for the future of history and how to share it with the world are cutting edge and very entrepreneurial.

She works hard to balance staying true to her community and her field and doesn’t want to be seen as selling out. And yet at the same time she needs to fund the work she is doing, so it puts her at a difficult crossroads a lot of the time.

What I love about Liz is her commitment to her field and her desire to share her passion with the world and her understanding of how technology can be used to help us understand and remember the past.

This episode was recorded LIVE on Blab, a new video streaming platform. Please give us a little grace with the audio. My podcasting mic was not being picked up so I had to switch to earbuds. :(  It is definitely fine, but I pride myself on providing you with great audio so just know I am aware of it.  I’ve figured it out going forward to the next interviews will be of higher audio quality on my end.
