Biased is biased

So it’s obvious that they want to tell history we missed in history class, but writing it now from a bias the other direction is just as wrong. What if we just told the facts? Not innuendo, not rumor, not through today’s lens, history must be viewed in context. We cannot fathom what is it like to have tried to survive in eras past. So to then tell the stores from our collective place of privilege is just as backwards as some of their ideas are to us in today’s context. We don’t have to light a candle we made today to see tonight! We turn on a light! Do better. Just tell the history stop trying to recontextualize it.

Farewell!

I used to love this podcast above all others. My preferred listen and I soaked up all the information. In today’s current climate they’re definitely taking a Leftist tone and it’s been upsetting. Tried to ignore it but now it’s really getting to me. Podcasts have always been an escape for me and it’s disheartening to listen and just have more one-sided politics being shoved in my face. Doesn’t matter what side you’re on, I don’t come here to be indoctrinated.
