Monuments & Statues

Arrrgh! Pirates!

What were they *really* like?

Episode Notes

Pirates? You mean murderers, robbers, extortionists, and kidnappers who prefer to work from a boat? No? Well, too bad – that’s what they are! In this episode, Ken and Glen discuss those people who in the popular imagination are happy-go-lucky, free-spirited, mischievous sailing enthusiasts, but who are in reality rum-soaked, syphilitic criminals. Enjoy!

Don't Call It the "Dark Ages!"

Episode Notes

Dark Ages? What Dark Ages!? Did the light go somewhere? No, no it didn’t… In this episode, Ken and Glen discuss how a very misleading term for the Middle Ages came about (hint - it has something to do with Rome!) and why it has rightly fallen out of use...by them, anyway.

The Crusades

A War for Prophets or Profits?

Episode Notes

“Retake the Holy Land!” Wait, wait, not so fast – what do you mean “retake”? The answer may surprise you! Actually, the answer will surprise you… In this episode Ken and Glen get medieval (one of their favorite things to do) and discuss the tangled, exciting, confusing, and adventurous (and centuries long!) events known as the Crusades.

One Giant Leap: 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11

Episode Notes

The metaphoric “Giant Leap” to the moon was giant indeed – about 238,900 miles. Good thing they had plenty of Tang to drink! – Even though Buzz Aldrin did say “Tang sucks.”! In this episode Ken and Glen discuss what didn’t suck about the Apollo 11 mission - namely the start of a new epoch for humanity as our species set foot on another world.

Travel Then vs. Travel Now

Episode Notes

Smart cars powered by electricity? How about your feet powered by what you had to eat! The need to get from one place to another is something that hasn’t changed since an early human first ran away from a lion to a modern human realizing the remote was across the room. In this episode, Ken and Glen discuss travel’s fundamental importance in daily life – and how whether it’s procuring spices from the other side of the world or getting crops to market, you’ll be walking at some point.

Rule Britannia!

What if we had lost the American War for Independence?

Episode Notes

What if the newly minted United States had lost their War for Independence? Well, for one thing George Washington would definitely not be on any currency! It was certainly not a foregone conclusion that there would be an American victory and in the event Britain did pretty well despite losing. In this episode, Ken and Glen get whimsical and muse historic on how differently the course of events could have run if Britain had crushed the rebel scum – God Save the King!

D-Day: Its Legacy and Memory

Episode Notes

General Dwight D. Eisenhower called it “the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months”, and remained the Allied soldiers that “The eyes of the world are upon you”. And indeed they were – the eyes of the Fascist regimes in Germany and Italy, of the Allied Soviet Union, of the Japanese foe in the Pacific, of occupied peoples everywhere. In this episode, Ken and Glen discuss how monumental an undertaking was the invasion of Hitler’s “Fortress Europe” – and how catastrophic failure would have been.

How Is History Preserved?

The past has disappeared but history remains

Episode Notes

HEADLINE: Notre Dame Burns to the Ground! Wait, no it didn’t, it’s made primarily of stone… The Notre Dame du Paris fire of April 2019 served as a reminder that history is not the past, but rather a preservation of the inquiry into the people, objects, and views of the past – and that even an object as seemingly transcendent of history as a cathedral are still in constant conflict with time and change. In this episode, Ken and Glen discuss what history means in a preservation context, and the challenges of what to preserve and how.

"Based on a True Story"

the ethics of telling true stories in movies

Episode Notes

When you see the words “based on a true story” in the opening credits of a film assume that’s Hollywood-speak for “mostly lies”! Using the film “Green Book” and the discussion its Oscar-winning generated as a springboard, in this episode Ken and Glen delve into truth, seeming truth, and cinematic responsibility in film.

Lewis & Clark

The Adventure of a Millennia

Lewis and Clark! They’re movies were hilarious! Wait, that was Lewis and Martin, you know, Jerry and Dean… We’re talking Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, the men who led the Corps of Discovery to find out just what the heck Thomas Jefferson had bought with the Louisiana Purchase. In this episode Ken and Glen go to the Pacific Northwest and back with not just Lewis and Clark, but also the invaluable Sacagawea and the little known enslaved servant York.
