    They say to understand history it’s important to walk a mile in another’s shoes. Historian & teacher, Andrew Mychalcus may take this to extremes. He has lived in a Viking ship, ridden astride a horse during the Civil War as a soldier, and fought in the Battle of Hastings on the actual battle site. His reenactments have appeared in film and on the seas, but it might not be as glamorous as it sounds.

    Chase Masterson & the Pop Culture Hero Coalition

    According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, more than one in five students report being the victim of bullying, but the number of children and adults who face mental intimidation, physical threat, or social manipulation may be even larger than that. What’s worse, is that numerous studies show that the impact of bullying can be both profound and long-lasting. 
    Joining us to talk about prevention, support, and what we can do is Chase Masterson, founder of the Pop Culture Hero Coalition, an organization which seeks to use stories from comics, TV, and film to teach real-life heroism over bullying.
