History! The most exciting and important things that have ever happened on the planet! Featuring reports from the weird and wonderful places around the world where history has been made and interviews with some of the best historians writing today. Dan also covers some of the major anniversaries as they pass by and explores the deep history behind today’s headlines – giving you the context to understand what is going on today.
I was thrilled to be joined on the podcast by the Pulitzer Prize–winning historian, Anne Applebaum. Anne’s written extensively on Marxism–Leninism, the development of civil society in Central and Eastern Europe, and was one of the first American journalists to raise an alarm about antidemocratic trends in the West. In this podcast we asked big questions about democracy – does it still appeal to us, and where does it stand in the modern world?
