Coffee With Jeff

This is the story of a young, pretty woman in the latter half of the nineteenth century who oddly had no desire to get married, have kids, or run a household. She became a pioneering reform-minded journalist, exposing many injustices and corruption in American Society. A muckraker who did many amazing things. Born Elizabeth Jane Cochran, most know her as Nellie Bly and today I have part one of her story, featuring the amazing voice of Nancy Frye as Nellie Bly.
