Introducing: Recall: How to Start a Revolution
The 1950s & 60s saw a wave of radical movements. Che Guevara and the Cuban Revolution. The Black Panthers. Quebec and Canada had the FLQ — a showdown that dissolved into crisis. By October 1970, there were soldiers in the streets, communities on edge, kidnapping and terror in the headlines. But those frightening weeks were just the crescendo of a wave of terror and violence that was nearly a decade in the making. This series will reveal the stories of that time through immersive storytelling and the people who lived it: the bomb disposal expert on defusing live explosives, the survivors of terror, their families, and the radicals themselves.

Just caught the Bhutto podcast with Carol Off. Fascinating “back” story, to be sure. Had no idea that she was in the mix with that tragedy. I attended CCH in London with Carol in the ‘70s, though we travelled in different circles back then. Nice to hear a former classmate share this event and nice to see that Carol has since settled with AIH these many years. Bravo, Carol.

The sound mixing in this podcast is art; I was hooked on the first episode. The music, interviews, the interplay of the news footage and the reporters sharing stories. It really brings to life some of these events. This podcast is the perfect solution to getting informed about events that you didn't get a chance to follow, because sometimes it can be hard to wade through the news articles and piece together the events.
Informative and entertaining.
Love the format.
What appeals the most is the format of this podcast. Starting in the middle, returning to the beginning, sparks my interest. Great documentary
