    WWI Propaganda in the US Part 1: Perfidious Albion's Propaganda

    WWI Propaganda in the US Part 1: Perfidious Albion's Propaganda

    Finally! Here it is - the longest and, I believe, the most important Dangerous History Podcast episode I've done to date! (I recorded the first of many segments for this episode all the way back in April, and had been researching & composing notes for it for many months before that!)
    Join CJ as he discusses the massive British propaganda operation in the US that ran from 1914-1917 (during the period of American "neutrality"), which was a crucial factor in eventually bringing the US into World War I.
    *Also (Super-Important, will have a special episode on this soon, but):

    Monsters to Destroy: A Fun-Sized Fourth of July DHP Special

    Monsters to Destroy: A Fun-Sized Fourth of July DHP Special

    Despite being in the process of getting over Covid (which didn't hit him particularly hard overall, but did hit his voice pretty badly), and despite still being up to his eyeballs on the forthcoming DHP episode about British propaganda ops in the US during WWI, CJ decided to put out a Fun-Sized DHP Independence Day special about a great speech given on a Fourth of July 201 years ago.
    Join CJ as he discusses John Quincy Adams, his famous speech from July 4th, 1821, the Monroe Doctrine, and how US leaders since the 1890s have turned away from Adams' wisdom.

    Busy Giddy Minds With Foreign Quarrels

    Busy Giddy Minds With Foreign Quarrels

    CJ continues to slog away on the first installment in the upcoming World War I Propaganda in the US mini-series, but he recently decided to take a brief break from that to talk about some historical tendencies that, unfortunately, seem to be repeating themselves in real time.
    Join CJ as he discusses the various ways that economics & the desire to distract from political problems at home often cause unnecessary wars, plus a few noteworthy examples of American leaders who resisted the urge to go to war despite economic and political problems at home.

    Vintage DHP Ep. 52 (Reissue): A History of the US Dollar, Part 5

    Vintage DHP Ep. 52 (Reissue): A History of the US Dollar, Part 5

    (*Note: This is a Vintage Dangerous History Podcast from 2014, reissued on the public DHP feed for a limited time. Please cut the poor audio quality some slack!)
    Finally, we conclude our non-consecutive series on the history of the history of the US dollar with part 5, looking at the story of the dollar following the breakdown of the Bretton Woods system. (This podcast was actually recorded over the course of 2 commutes — the first half in the morning commute to work, and the second one in the afternoon commute home.)
    Join CJ as he discusses:

    How the ending the ‘gold window’ in 1972 led to high inflation, which led to negative consequences (including some not purely economic) for society

    The approaches of the Ford and Carter administrations to dealing with inflation

    How, under first Carter and then Reagan, Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker (appointed in 1979) used high interest rates to staunch (though not completely stop) the erosion of the US dollar’s value in the early-1980s

    The reasons that the dollar still (mostly) operates as the world reserve currency despite its obvious flaws and vulnerabilities, including the meaning of the term ‘petrodollar’

    How things will go wrong, sooner or later, with this system, and how the remedy used previously by Volcker (high interest rates) could not realistically be used today by the Fed, even if they wanted to do so

    A few thoughts on ways to prepare for this eventuality

Insightful

This has been the most intellectually stimulating podcast I have heard in years. Prof CJ has a unique way of bringing ideas to the fore front of your mind. Make you think about people, places and events in a new light.
