    Pandemics

    We're currently living through one of the deadliest pandemics in history. But what can previous outbreaks teach us about handling the coronavirus? Join us as we travel back to the earliest epidemics and move through time to learn about plagues that wiped out entire populations (and pick up some tips for how to handle ours).

    Violent Resistance Movements

    Violent Resistance Movements

    The U. S. Civil Rights Movement, anti-apartheid protests, fight for Indian independence, and women's suffrage campaigns are all generally characterized by the nonviolent change they enacted. But if we look a little deeper, we can find bloody battle scars that have been buried beneath the rest of the history. Join us as we learn about Gandhi's violent counterparts, feminist bombers, the Black Panthers (not the ones from Wakanda), and some of the most notable violent resistance movements around the world.

    Pride Month

    Pride Month

    To celebrate June as Pride Month, we delve into the history of the LGBTQ+ community and the advances they have made in spite of oppression throughout large portions of history. We do our best to answer why Pride Month is so important by going through history from the very first queer figures all they way to modern issues faced by the community.

    The White Man's Burden

    The White Man's Burden

    In February 1899, Rudyard Kipling wrote and published a poem about his beliefs on the duty of the white man to 'educate' and 'civilize' other cultures and countries.  We discuss how those lines, and the doctrine of imperialism it fueled, had real effects on the world as we know it, as well as how the "White Man's Burden" is still alive in the minds of people today.
