Millions of people around the world collect, preserve, and trade or sell postage stamps; the hobby, or investment, is known as, philately. The first stamp forgeries began to show up, well, when the first stamps showed up. The Penny Black, the world's first adhesive stamp, was issued in 1840, and the world's first forged stamps followed later that year. Stamp collecting has been called, quote, "the hobby of kings and the king of hobbies." And for a time in the early 20th century, a man named Jean de Sperati was king.

Some historians believe Italian forger Tobia Nicotra may have produced hundreds of document and signature forgeries attributed to names like Mozart and Galileo, before he was caught in the 1930s. He faded into obscurity, but his forgeries didn't. And for more than 80 years the University of Michigan housed a Galileo manuscript they didn't know was fake -- until a historian named Nick Wilding called its bluff.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Today on the Rarified Heir Podcast we are talking to Peter Knego, whose parents actor Peter Coe and Model/Actress Rosalee Calvert really come alive in the conversation you are about to hear. What's our connection? Well Rosalee was in two films with Edie Adams, Josh's mother and both Peter and Josh both went to the same high school. But listening to Peter talk about everything from his firsthand accounts of Mel Brooks and Ed Wood to James Galanos and Sparks – herein lies the the story of his celebrity parents. Peter and Josh barely scratched the surface but somehow we cover everything from growing up on food stamps in the Hollywood Hills to his difficult relationship with his eight-time married father who over time becomes a friend. We hear about real life actual Nazis, the 20thCentury train, Elektra Records mogul Ahmet Ertrgun, c-level actor Paul Marco, Cecil B. Demille, an unproduced Ed Wood musical, lunch at Pasta, Inc. on Sunset Plaza, the glory of Westwood in the 1980s as well as whaling songs from the 1930s. Actually that last part isn't true. But it's about the only thing Peter Knego didn't touch upon in our wide ranging conversation about being the child of a celebrity. Peter's story, is anything but normal. It's funny, tough to listen to at times, uplifting and sometimes too much to believe. So Kimono My House and take a listen to this episode of the Rarified Heir Podcast. Everyone has a story
Wilma Minor's 'Lincoln the Lover' forgery has been called one of the most audacious literary hoaxes of all time, and involves an alleged love story between a young Abraham Lincoln and a woman named Ann Rutledge. There was never any conclusive evidence the two had a romantic relationship; there was nothing in the historical record – no letters or notes between them, for instance -- that showed any indication of their love. Until 1928. Executive Producers: Maria Trimarchi and Holly FreyProducer & Editor: Casby BiasSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

It's said his own handwriting was a neat and graceful script, not unlike Abraham Lincoln's. He could fake the hand of Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Baker Eddy, and dozens of other historical figures. In fact, experts believe that a large number of the documents he produced in the early 20th century are still circulating today -- and inaccurately regarded as genuine. This is the story of Martin Coneely, alias, Joseph Cosey, who could sign Benjamin Franklin's name perhaps better than Ben, himself.

Dr. Gary North concludes his discussion of how the Scopes Trial and the ensuing political developments shaped the 20th century. Politics gets all the focus, but if every Christian began thinking and teaching how their worldview affects everything from car and home repair to art and music, as well as education (and politics), the battle would be won in short order. We must lose the "woe is me" mentality and develop a "why not me" mentality and strategy instead.
Dr. Gary North continues his discussion of how the Scopes Trial and the ensuing political developments shaped the 20th century. Christians began to get politically involved late in the 1970s but didn't have a unique tactic to extend their game plan. A defensive plan is good in the beginning but an offensive strategy is necessary to sustain the momentum.

How did the rise of consumerism impact Britain? In Lifestyle Revolution: How Taste Changed Class in Late 20th-Century Britain (Manchester UP, 2023), Ben Highmore, a Professor of Cultural Studies in the School of Media, Arts and Humanities at the University of Sussex, explores this question by telling the story of key British institutions and cultural habits. The book uses a wealth of different sources, including newspapers, lifestyle magazines, shopping catalogues, plays, books, and television programmes, as well as architecture and design, in order to think through key forms of social identity and the structures of feeling underpinning social change. The book is a rich, deep, and fascinating examination of how taste patterns and practices made modern Britain, and how modern Britain made tastes. It will be essential reading across the arts humanities and social sciences, as well as for anyone interested in understanding the recent history of culture in the UK.

Hiding in plain sight is some of Aotearoa New Zealand's most culturally significant artwork. However, these pieces intended to enrich public spaces have over the years fallen victim to the elements, privatisation, or have just simply been lost. In a bid to safeguard the our 20th century public artwork in perpetuity is the country's first national register. Sue Elliott, Co-Director of Public Art Heritage Aotearoa New Zealand, joins me now to talk about the initiative which launched this week.
Dan challenges listeners, and himself, to have a sunnier disposition in looking at the bright side of issues - most notably those which require overcoming considerable obstacles to do so.

In today's episode we conclude our long, multi-part series on the secret history of the 20th century. In this presentation, I use the UFO Mystery as a means to tie together elements from this whole chapter. Ultimately, I argue that this phenomenon is a component of larger initiation effort being carried out by the Mystery Schools. The "alien" meme is a component of this larger operation, one carried out primarily through the "technocratic superstate", which is the outer institutional vehicle the Mystery Schools are currently working though.This is a totally original analysis of the UFO topic you won't see anywhere else.To find the written article: thewisdomtradition.substack.comMy website: www.alexsachon.comThank you to everyone who made it though the series!

In this episode we move into the conclusion of this long multi-part series on the secret history of the 20th century. I've broken this finale into two episodes, with a follow-up, Part 11, coming tomorrow. In this episode, we track the development of the "technocratic superstate" within America, which emerged as a consequence of America harvesting Nazi Germany's Kammlerstab program after the war. What resulted was the formation of a permanent black projects empire in America, one centered around a central think tank, just like the old Nazi S.S. program had been.Related to the existence of this technocratic superstate is a secret "black budget" economy, this being designed to funnel large quantities of funds into the black projects world. In this episode we also discuss the caste system, and revisit the theme of the "secret destiny of America", something we've discussed at numerous points over the course of the various articles and chapters that have comprised this larger book project on the history, purpose, and destiny of Philosophy.For the written article, see thewisdomtradition.substack.comMy website: www.alexsachon.com Thank you, and remember to check back tomorrow for the follow-up. - Alex
William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) was an American poet, writer, and physician. He is considered one of the major figures in American modernist poetry. Tune in as we speak about him, his past, and his work and contributions to the world of art.
Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone were joined by other innovators of their day to explore America in what was their idea of roughing it as campers. They came to West Virginia twice and documented their love for its beauty while being hailed by locals as they swept through Mountain State communities with their own personal flair.

Jonathan M. Katz - Smedley ButlerSmedley Butler was a decorated and notable soldier, rising to the rank of Major General thanks to his fighting in battles in the Philippines, The Mexican Revolution and World War 1.In 1933 he appeared in front of a congressional committee to inform them of a planned coup, organised by some of the wealthiest industrialists in America, to overthrow the administration of Theodore Roosevelt. He was appearing after being asked to lead a demonstration of veterans in Washington who would then launch an attack on the civil structures of State. This was similar to events and schemes happening or being planned throughout Europe at the time, though bore few connections apart from the Fascist influences.Jonathan M. Katz talks about his book – Gangsters of Capitalism, detailing how America went from where it was at the turn of the 20thCentury, to where it is over a hundred years later, from the foundations built by people like Smedley Butler – called The Maverick Marine - in the first half of the century.His book has been referenced as essential for anyone who wants to know how the modern world came to be.WebsiteJonathan M.

In this episode, we continue our series on the secret history of the 20th century by examining events taking place in the decades that followed the conclusion of WWII. The significance of this period comes not from the Cold War but from the onset of the "American Century" that was taking place behind it.The "American Century was the name that the elite think tank The Council on Foreign Relations gave to their plans for a global economic empire controlled by the American nation security state. These plans were formulated during the war years, announced in 1945 at the war's end, and swiftly implemented in the years and decades immediately following its conclusion: these being the same years when the Cold War was also at its peak. As it turns out, the Cold War was as a mask for America's imperial campaign: it was an engineered "forever war" designed to justify the buildout of a permanent military-industrial complex. Concealed deeply within this compartmentalized behemoth, where secrecy and black projects abound, resides a secret think tank and R&D unit that is developing world-changing technologies of the nature few can imagine. The real purpose of the Cold War was to mask the creation of this secret scientific institution.This is the thesis I present in this episode. Stay tuned to find out more.www.alexsachon.comthewisdomtradition.substack.com - Alex

He has written on such industries as computers, semiconductors, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, and software. His history of the microcomputer industry won the Newcomen Award as the best article in Business History Review in 1992. Recently, Professor Langlois has turned his attention to explaining the changes in corporate organization in the late twentieth century, a set of phenomena he refers to as the Vanishing Hand. His latest book, The Dynamics of Industrial Capitalism: Schumpeter, Chandler, and the New Economy (Routledge, 2007), received the 2006 Schumpeter Prize of the International Joseph A.
