Bonus 59: Guided Imagery – “The Gleaners” (famous painting)

A guided imagery of  “The Gleaners”, painted by Jean Francois Millet.   I’ll explain a brief summary of the contents of the painting and then I’ll try to repaint a vision of it in your mind along with the meaning and history of the painting.

You can view an image of the painting at the link below.

Bonus 58: Big Batch #10 – History Whisperpedias (Ancient Olympics, Thanksgiving, Easter Island, Miracle on Ice)

Enjoy 2 hours of Whisperpedias about history!

I took 4 prior Whisperpedias, removed their intro music and spoken introductions, deleted any ads or commercials, normalized their volumes, and pasted them together.

So each section begins immediately with historical nuggets from Wikipedia to give you a 100% pure and extended Whisperpedia experience.

Start times so you can jump to a specific spot:

Start: 0h:0m:0s – Ancient Olympics
Start: 0h:20m:20s – History of Thanksgiving
Start: 0h:55m:05s – History of Easter Island
Start: 1h:33m:20s – The Historical Miracle on Ice
