    Nazis in America: The Madison Square Garden Rally

    Nazis in America: The Madison Square Garden Rally

    In 1939, as many as 22,000 Americans met for a Nazi rally in New York’s Madison Square Garden. It was an event of the German-American Bund and attendees cheered while listening to anti-semitic, Nazi-sympathizing speeches. It’s hard to believe that this type of thing could happen in America, but it’s true. In this episode, we examine the event and then play the quick quiz with International Award-Winning Magician, Erik Tait.

    Is The Original English Accent Still Alive in Parts of the United States?

    On the isolated island community of Tangier, Virginia, the residents speak with a dialect that is entirely unique. It’s part southern drawl, part ”brogue,” and some have claimed it’s a relic dialect left over from the first English settlers to the area in the 1600s. But is that true? In this episode, we learn about the region, its dialect and the reason for this strange accent. Then we play the quick quiz with my wife Alison!
