This Day in History: 1933 – Eight days after his inauguration, President Franklin D. Roosevelt gives his first national radio address, or “fireside chat.”  It is broadcast directly from the White House.

Fact of the Day: Journalist Robert Trout coined the phrase “fireside chat” to describe President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s radio addresses, hoping to invoke an image of a president sitting by a fire in a living room, speaking earnestly to the American people about his hopes and dreams for the nation.  In fact, Roosevelt took great care to make sure each address was accessible and understandable to ordinary Americans, regardless of their level of education. He used simple vocabulary and relied on folksy anecdotes or analogies to explain the often complex issues facing the country.

#StrangeButTrue: Today’s smartphones have more computing power than NASA used for the first moon landing.
