    305. Tomatoes from Mexico

    305. Tomatoes from Mexico

    Tomato seeds were brought from Mexico to Spain by those early explorers as part of the great Columbian exchange. From there the plant spread to Italy by the mid-1500s where it began to be incorporated into regional cuisine. Over the following decades, tomato plants were cultivated throughout Europe, but primarily as an ornamental plant.

    303. Canadian Martyrs

    303. Canadian Martyrs

    Eight Jesuit missionaries from Sainte-Marie among the Hurons were ritually tortured and killed on various dates between 1642-49 in Canada, in what is now southern Ontario, and in upstate New York, during the warfare between the Iroquioan tribes the Mohawk and the Huron. They have subsequently been canonized and venerated as the Canadian martyrs by the Catholic Church (René Goupil, Isaac Jogues, Jean de Lalande, Antoine Daniel, Jean de Brébeuf, Gabriel Lalemant, Charles Garnier, Noël Chabanel).

    302. Jesuit Order in New France

    302. Jesuit Order in New France

    The Society of Jesus also called "The Company of Jesus" to indicate its military spirit, were linguists, explorers and ethnographers. They learned New World Indigenous languages and customs, developed dictionaries and grammars, translated and preserved much of the history and traditions in their documents—which include details of their missions and activities and both the successes and failures of the Jesuits in their attempts to convert Indigenous peoples. In North America, their goal was to bring lost souls to Christianity and they were willing to endure hardships and to shed their blood to succeed.

Joseph Pascone ,

Great content!

Mark Vinet explores the history of North America through a unique lens; he has created an interesting and thoughtful show, which my partner and I both enjoy listening to. Great work!

Not afraid to take on the taboo topics

Mark Vinet’s podcast gives you an unvarnished look at the History of North America. He isn’t afraid to delve into the difficult topics, like slavery, but in an even-handed way.

Gamerathome ,

Suddenly political and far right

Episode 251 was the last straw. This podcast is very biased now. Leaving this dumpster fire before it gets worse
