Then Again with Ken and Glen

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.

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.

The West

The Journey and the Myth

Episode Notes

Well Pardner, pull yer horse up ‘round the chuck-wagon an’ play a hand of poker ‘round th’ campfire while trick shootin’ a rattlesnake off a cactus with yer six-gun…or forget that nonsense and let’s talk about the real West! Though what most people think of as the Old West realistically lasted only about 20 years, it has a vast mythology. In this episode Ken and Glen ride the range of those myths - and the realities behind them.

The Great War

WWI from the Global to the Personal

Episode Notes

So, what was World War I called before World War II tipped us off? The “Great War” – and not great as in wonderful, but great as in enormous or overpowering. To those born in the late 20th and early 21st centuries the magnitude of what The Great War meant to those who experienced it can be elusive – Ken and Glen try to provide a sense of it in this episode.

The Battle of Hastings in 1066

Episode Notes

Why should you care about a battle that took place in southeast England almost one thousand years ago? Because this podcast is in English, that’s why! The language sounds the way it does today as a direct result of that battle on October 14, 1066. Very few single days actually “change the course of History” – Ken and Glen tell you why this is one.

The History Behind Game of Thrones

Episode Notes

Game of Thrones is so much more that an adaptation of a Dungeons and Dragons gaming session. It’s also an adaptation of European Medieval history! Doesn’t George R. R. Martin have any ideas of his own!? Of course he does, and in this episode Ken and Glen discuss how he takes factual underpinnings and transforms them into realistic high fantasy.
