Description

The Cold War, Prohibition, the Gold Rush, the Space Race. Every part of your life -the words you speak, the ideas you share- can be traced to our history, but how well do you really know the stories that made America? We’ll take you to the events, the times and the people that shaped our nation. And we’ll show you how our history affected them, their families and affects you today. Hosted by Lindsay Graham (not the Senator). From Wondery, the network behind Tides Of History, Fall Of Rome and Dirty John.

This episode confused the hell out of me. I'm playing it again now because I didn't really understand it the first time.

Clever but not too clever disguised series to make Americans doubt our Greatness.

M. S. When your default position is that your country possesses inherent greatness, you turn off your critical thought and turn hostile to those who are more open-minded. As a result one's mind closes to potential reforms that could be beneficial to the country you love. An analogy: a smart coach doesn't just praise a talented kid and let him/her play, instead the coach points out where improvement is possible, even to the point of breaking bad habits.

I really enjoy this podcast I love how they act out people to put you into the mindset of average people of the time. A welcome change from other more dry history podcasts.

KU! KU! Ku Klux Klan. Grom the Greek Kuklos, circle. Yet you say KLU. Why?

great storytelling and presentation. unfortunately the series is almost neurotic in its need to downplay any threat to the standard left leaning narrative surrounding the cold war.

Generally good; but lose the distracting sound effects. They add nothing yet alienate the discerning listener.

I can't wait to see what you all cover next. It was a more intimate look at Prohibition. Can we look forward to a Civil Rights Movement series?
