    The Tulsa Race Massacre (S2, E4)

    The Tulsa Race Massacre (S2, E4)

    This episode of the podcast is a look into the Tulsa Race Massacre and Juneteenth. I took a few weeks away from the podcast so I could read, learn, and come back to the podcast with a better knowledge of events that impacted the Black communities in the US and the world.

    A few weeks before this episode aired, Trump caused a furor over his decision to hold a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 19.  At the time, I didn't understand why there was an outcry (other than holding a rally during the global pandemic), but I soon learned about the Tulsa Race Massacre and Juneteenth - dates and events that I'd never learned in school.

    I started this podcast to learn about and share events, people, and places that may have been footnotes in our history books and history classes. Or in this case, left out entirely. This episode dives into the events of the Tulsa Race Massacre, and why June 19th is such an important date.

    The Jacobite Rebellion of 1715 (S2, E3)

    The Jacobite Rebellion of 1715 (S2, E3)

    This one's for all of you Outlander fans out there! While we learn about Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) and the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 in the books and the show, I was interested to learn a bit more about the first rising in 1715 and to find out who played a role in the attempt to put a Stuart on the throne.

    What I didn't expect was to learn where the phrase "read the riot act" came from and how Scotland and England became a union.

    This episode is a bit shorter than normal - but it's definitely an interesting story that I can't wait to learn more about in-person in Scotland when we can travel the world again.

    Spanish Flu of 1918 (S2, E2)

    Over 100 years after the Spanish Flu, we're going through our own pandemic (which to be honest, inspired me to start this podcast back up again!). In this episode, we take a look at the Spanish Flu of 1918 and the similarities to our current COVID-19 pandemic.

    Danish History Part 2 (S2, E1)

    Danish History Part 2 (S2, E1)

    The History in 10 Podcast is back for season 2!

    In this first episode, we're wrapping up what we started in Season 1: Danish history, but we're taking a bit of a different approach. Instead of going through each point in history and drawing it out like we're reading a history textbook, we're focusing on some interesting points in Danish history. 

    Listen in as we talk about the Kalmar Union, how at one point anyone could become a noble, the history of Copenhagen, one of Denmark's most famous authors, Hans Christian Andersen, the Little Mermaid statue, and a few other interesting pieces of Danish history.

    Episode 27: Danish History Part 1

    Episode 27: Danish History Part 1

    Today’s episode is part one of a series on Danish history. As I prepare for my first trip to Denmark, the country my paternal grandparents emigrated from in the mid-20th century, I wanted to know more about the history of the country - from the first inhabitants, to the Vikings, monarchy and the culture that led to current day Denmark.
