    118h: Joseph is a Man of Dreams in a Colorful Coat

    Today I am very excited to be joined yet again by Gil Kidron, host of A Podcast of Biblical Proportions to talk about the year 2000 film Joseph: Man of Dreams animated movie. This movie gets so much right about the story of Joseph, much more than an animated children’s movie should get right.

    Events that Should Be History, A Parthenon Exclusive

    Events that Should Be History, A Parthenon Exclusive

    All of us have terrible regrets. Accepting that job that became dead-end. Marry someone from high school who ended up being a kleptomaniac with halitosis. Emptying out our life savings to invest in Logan and Jake Paul’s NFT collections. Don’t you wish you could take it all back?
    While we can’t help you with your personal problems, we are pleased to let you know that the hosts of the history programs that make up Parthenon Podcasts are here to get rid of some of the worst events in history and cleaning up our timeline. In just one hour, we will do the following:

    •Prevent the Civil War and Emancipate all U.S. slaves in 1861
    •Prevent Saddam Hussein from seizing power in Iraq, thus prevent the Iran-Iraq War and both Gulf Wars
    •Prevent half a century’s worth of conspiracy theories that sprung up in the wake of the JFK assassination
    •Accelerate the invention of the printing press by 1,500 years by stopping the Bronze Age Collapse
    Hope you enjoy this talk with James Early from Key Battles of American History, Josh Cohen from Eyewitness History, Steve Guerra from History of the Papacy and Beyond the Big Screen, Richard Lim from This American President, and Scott Rank from History Unplugged.

    I want to thank Scott Rank of the History Unplugged, James Early of the Key Battles of American History Podcast, Josh Cohen of the Eyewitness History Podcast and Richard Lim of This American President for all coming together for another great Parthenon Network round up episode on what event would we delete from history. In previous round up collaborations, we’ve killed historical characters, we’ve saved historical characters, well now were are going to edit out important events from history and see what happens. Who knows? You’ll have to listen to find out!
    Look for more of these episodes from the Parthenon Podcast Network. To see show notes and learn more about these great podcasts, go over to Parthenon podcast dot com. If you have an idea for a Round Up episode, please send me an email or reach out on social media. You can send me an email to steve at a to z history page dot com or find me on social media platforms at A to Z history. I will talk to you soon!

    118f: Jacob - Putting the Patriarch in the Patriarchy

    118f: Jacob - Putting the Patriarch in the Patriarchy

    I am joined once again by Garry Steven of the History in the Bible podcast, as we continue down memory lane, discussing our favorite moments of the Old Testament. Today, we reminisce about the family of the Patriarch Jacob. Jacob, sometimes known as Israel, may have been the patriarch of a nation, but like most of us, he wasn’t always able to control his kids!

Enjoyable

I love listening to Steve and Garry talk through biblical stories. They take turn reading bits, and then discuss. When they enact faux court, it’s brilliant.

Best podcast on the Papacy out there!

Stephen Guerra is simply the gold standard when it comes to podcasters and the papacy. He has an encyclopedic knowledge about the subject and his analysis is second to none. If you want to understand the papacy, this podcast is where to go.
