    Great podcast. Thank you.

    @Sheldon Kent – you mentioned that many books published in Britain made their way to the US frontier in JS’s time. I’ve come across this before but am interested in finding the best information which establishes this fact. Can you point me to the best citations for this claim? Thank you!

    Also, where can we read more about your bricoleur theory?
