Episode 31: Revolutionary journalist and whistleblower Thomas Paine (part 3)

In Part 3 of our special series on Thomas Paine, historian Harvey Kaye continues to zero in on Paine’s precarious life shuttling back and forth between England and Revolutionary France and both the admiration and enmity he receives over the publication of Rights of Man, Age of Reason and Agrarian Justice.

Kaye also ruminates on the motivation of Paine’s inflammatory open letter to George Washington which led to the dissolution of their 20 year friendship.
