History speaks to us through the many threads of the past, informing our present and predicting our future. Vox History examines those voices in a unique way. Each episode of this podcast is created by students of history at Elk Grove High School. In lieu of traditional tests and activities, the students pick the topics and produce the episodes. Sometimes you may hear the voice of teachers as well, as they become inspired by the students.
