My History Can Beat Up Your Politics, routinely podcasting since 2006, is a podcast that uses history to better understand the politics of today. History is books, journals, films, old letters, buttons and slogans, sometimes photos and cartoons. They can speak to us in ways that current commentators are too invested to do. It doesn’t always work, but sometimes it works very well.
We are part of the Airwave Media Podcast Network, along with Kick Ass Politics, Ben Franklin’s World, and podcasts by the Founder of Snopes.com and food critic Mark Bittman, among others.
We do a mix of episodes – great stories of politics and history, explanations of political concepts, interviews with authors who can talk politics and history, and Q&A. (Lately, I’ve been deemphasizing interviews as listeners seem to prefer the narrative history.)
