    Prof. Joseph Ellis

    James and Al are joined by American historian Joseph Ellis for a deep dive into the politics, people and passions that set off the American Revolution on both sides of the Atlantic.  How deeply did the years of 1773 - 1783 shape our nation?  And after watching our country lose to two insurgencies across the globe and our politics fracture, what lessons can we learn?
