Bly vs. Bisland
- Beating Phileas Fogg in a Race Around the World
- By: Nellie Bly, Elizabeth Bisland
- Narrated by: Karen Commins, Melissa Reizian Frank
- Length: 11 hrs and 34 mins
In 1888, Nellie Bly, a feisty, investigative reporter for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World newspaper, pitched a story idea of traveling around the world in 75 days to beat the record achieved by Phileas Fogg, the character in Verne's book. While the editor thought it a great idea, he naturally thought the trip should be made by a man. The idea was shelved for over a year.
Thanks be for public domain & ingenuity of editor!
