Something More With Chris Boyd
Chris welcomes Ruth Provost, Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod and Gretchen Murphy of Dowling & O’Neil Group. With over 1,089 members, the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod runs before and after school, school break, and summer vacation programs for children and teens. They are funded through donations, grants, and special events. Gretchen talks about personal and commercial insurance based on how the property will be used, and the cost to replace both structure and liability risk if someone is injured. Wind insurance, whether a straight deductible or “named storm”, is something those near the water should consider. An umbrella policy provides extra coverage over and above a home or auto policy.
Gretchen Murphy, “How Federalist Women Shaped America”
Discovery & Inspiration
Though its viability as a political party was short-lived, the influence of the Federalists extended well beyond the early years of the American republic. After the election of 1800, the party’s fortunes dimmed, and the party dissolved in 1824, but its ideas have continued to shape American institutions and political attitudes up to the present day. NHC Fellow Gretchen Murphy has researched the ways in which women writers have shaped and preserved the Federalist legacy. In this podcast, she delves into the fundamental importance of religion for the Federalists and the influence of the French Revolution on the party’s vision for the American nation. Drawing from multiple types of sources, including novels, poetry, essays, and letters by women Federalists, Murphy reflects on the ways in which these women confronted a problem which persists today: how can a democracy function without a shared sense of moral authority?
