Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
A few weeks ago, Frances and I were discussing the Great Depression, the severe worldwide economic depression of the 1930’s, which started in 1929. We still talk about with the market crash of October 29, 1929 known as Black Tuesday. It was a decade that experienced the most extensive, deepest, and most widespread depression in the 20th century. It gripped the entire world with devastating consequences. Unemployment was as high as 25% in the United States and for some countries, unemployment rose as high as 33%. Frances lived through the decade of the 1930’s and has talked about those years in a series of podcasts.
This podcast is about the transition between the 1920’s, a decade of plenty and the 1930’s, the decade that would change the world.
Frances and my discussion occurred before we knew that our world would soon face a global challenge, Frances’s memories remind us that by working together we can overcome this challenge. So put the kettle on and add to the discussion. Frances and I look forward to your insights on TeaToastTrivia.com.
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Frances and me on Tea Toast and Trivia. One last thought – comes from Eleanor Roosevelt:
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life
