This is the third episode in Eric Ludy's winter Daily Thunder series that dives into the unstable season of American History known as the Antebellum period (1815-1861). In this particular episode Eric explores the unique parallel between the period right before the Civil War and the period we are all living in right now. Today we have the Woke crowd, but back in 1861, they had the Wide Awakes. And, ironically, both the Woke and the Wide Awakes had the foundational motivation of racial redress. But, the Woke crowd of 2022 would be benefited from a few lessons in approach, courtesy, and consideration from the 1861 Wide Awakes. Support this podcast

I present this as an exercise of what we may have to do if some of wacko governors have their way and limited an High School student's access to information about slavery and discrimination in America. Or any other topic. One thing we can do is read the textbooks on Zoom or some similar podcast source, read to the next generation about any topic, and let them figure what to make of the facts, rather than keep them in the dark about the bad, the good and the ugly, by withholding from them what happened in American History. The text book I used was the one I used in Advance Placement History in High School. I recommend you get a young-un to listen and see what they think of this abbreviated class, and how they think of it as an alternative or supplemental vehicle of instruction. And yes I did teach High School a long time ago. John P. Flannery, II, Esq (jonflan@aol.com, @jonflan)

Also know as the Reign of Terror, the Osage Nation Murders marks the murders of approximately sixty Osage Native Americans by those that wanted to take over their land and headrights to the lucrative oil it produced. The subsequent investigation was conducted by the still-evolving Federal Bureau of Investigation and would mark one of the most devastating massacres and conspiracies in American History.

In 1900 the port city of Galveston, Texas was the 3rd largest city in Texas, boasting a population of 38,000 people, and they were doing so well with business that they had earned the nickname "the Wall Street of the South". Located as they were on a 25 mile strip of sand with Galveston Bay to the north and The Gulf of Mexico to the south, and being mostly at sea level- they were a prime target for a big storm. Some had hit but scored little damage- and the leaders of the city became over confident, refusing to invest tax dollars in a seawall to protect against the worst. When the worst hit them on September 8th, in the form of a Cat 4 hurricane with winds estimated at 140mph, 1900, between 6,000 and 12,000 people died. The storm has its stories, and we share them here in parts one and two, the most famous being the nuns in the orphanage who tried to protect the children in their care.

He was an extraordinarily gifted athlete, the premier football player of his time, a California golden child who emerged from abject poverty to win the Heisman trophy in college and set records as a pro football running back. Effortless grace and a ready smile eased his transition from ex-athlete to corporate-backed celebrity. All of that changed on the night of June 13, 1992, when his ex-wife Nicole Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman, were found brutally murdered. Evidence gleaned from the murder site suggested that her executioner may well have been O.J. Simpson. But when police decided to arrest Simpson two days later, an even more surreal tableaux unfolded - live on national television in front of 95-million viewers.

The 60s hosted the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union, which occurred in the midst of the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and civil unrest. How did the culture wars of the 1960s relate to the space race, especially in the United States? How did the Civil Rights Movement, the New Left, environmentalism, the women's movement, and the Hippie counterculture influence NASA, and vice versa? With us to answer these questions is Neil Maher. Neil received a B.A. in history from Dartmouth College in 1986, an MA in U.S. history from New York University in 1997, and a Ph.D. in history, also from New York University, in 2001. He is a professor of history in the Federated History Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers University, Newark, where he teaches environmental history, political history, and the history of environmental justice. Neil has received numerous fellowships, awards, and grants from the Smithsonian Institution, NASA, Harvard University's Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, and Ludwig Maximilian University's Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society in Munich, Germany.

Constitutional Chats hosted by Janine Turner and Cathy Gillespie

Have you ever thought about the role our government plays in our economy? Think about this: Does our constitution protect economic liberty? Do you have the right to buy and sell at the price and terms you set? Can you borrow and lend?  Do we have a right to transact anonymously, especially in the era of crypto?  All of these questions play a role in whether or not our country sustains long term economic growth.  Join our special guest John Cochrane, otherwise known as “The Grumpy Economist”, and our panel as we examine the relationship between our government and our economy.

This week we address the history of the presidency writ large with Jeremi Suri, the Mack Brown Distinguished Chair in Global Affairs at the LBJ School of Public Affairs and a professor in the Department of History at The University of Texas. He is a frequent commentator on current affairs and writes for op-ed pages and book reviews all over the country. He hosts his own podcast, This is Democracy, and he is author of several books in American history and the international history of the 20th century. In his book The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office, Dr. Suri sweeps across the history of the American presidency and paints a rather gloomy picture of the institution in the early 21st century. In this episode, he explains why we haven't had a great president since Franklin Roosevelt, in his opinion.

Last year, the University of Chicago film scholar Stewart won a prestigious MacArthur fellowship for “illuminating the contributions that overlooked Black filmmakers and communities of spectators have made to cinema's development as an art form.” Stewart also serves as the host of Silent Sunday Nights on Turner Classic Movies and is chief artistic and programming officer at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. On this episode, Stewart explores the history of Black cinema and explains how preservation and archiving are not neutral acts, but contribute to how we contextualize and understand Black history.

Episode 80  continues  the story of the autopsy.  This episode  is the second and final   in a  two part series that covers the HSCA  testimony in 1978  of John Ebersole, MD  the Radiologist in charge of the  radiology studies  performed on the President at Bethesda.  Join us in this sixteenth  autopsy  episode  which begins to reveal even more fantastic events that occurred during the autopsy.  This  episode contains some of the  most explosive facts in this series to date.  And join us  for a  whole series of episodes about the fantastic goings on that encompass this part of the JFK story.   There is  more direct forensics to come in this series of  forensics episodes.  Stay tuned,  and eventually we'll explore  more of the physical evidence involving use and ownership of the   Mannlicher Carcano rifle and  evidence  recovered from the Presidential limousine, as well as damage done to the vehicle.  Our episodes have now begun  to explore  an array of matters that  dive into a deeper  darkness  related to what  went on that day in Dallas and in the  period before and after the assassination.  Matters   that possibly point  to a  wider  and more sinister  plot to kill the president and  that clearly call into question the theory that there was a  lone assassin.   Complex cases without  an eyewitness that can actually identify the shooter make the forensic and circumstantial evidence that much more important.  Ironically, problems abound with much of the evidence in this case. Evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting. Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over  the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it,  were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!This series comprehensively explores the major facts,  themes, and  events leading up to the assassination in Dealey Plaza and the equally gripping stories surrounding the subsequent investigation. We  review  key elements of the Warren Commission Report , and the role of the CIA and FBI. We explore the  possible involvement of the Mafia in the murder and the review of that topic by the government's House Select Committee on Assassinations in the 1970's. We explore the Jim Garrison investigation and the work of other key figures such as Mark Lane and others. Learn more about Lee Harvey Oswald the suspected killer and Jack Ruby the distraught Dallas night club owner with underworld ties and the man that killed Oswald as a national TV audience was watching.  Stay with us as we take you through the facts and theories in bite sized discussions that are designed to educate, and inform as well as entertain the audience. This  real life story is more fascinating than fiction. No matter whether you are a serious researcher or a casual student, you will enjoy the fact filled narrative and story as  we relive one of the most shocking moments in American History. An event that changed the nation and changed the world forever.

For many Americans, the birth certificate is a mundane piece of paper, unearthed from deep storage when applying for a driver's license, verifying information for new employers, or claiming state and federal benefits. Yet as Donald Trump and his fellow “birthers” reminded us when they claimed that Barack Obama wasn't an American citizen, it plays a central role in determining identity and citizenship. In The Birth Certificate: An American History (University of North Carolina Press, 2021), award-winning historian Susan J. Pearson traces the document's two-hundred-year history to explain when, how, and why birth certificates came to matter so much in the United States. Deftly weaving together social, political, and legal history, The Birth Certificate is a fascinating biography of a piece of paper that grounds our understanding of how those who live in the United States are considered Americans. Susan J. Pearson is associate professor of history at Northwestern University and the author of The Rights of the Defenseless: Protecting Animals and Children in Gilded Age America.

Bad Women Series, #4 of 4. The popular image of Parks is one of quiet, and demure respectability. When we were in elementary school, we were taught that Parks was a tired old woman, whose feet hurt after a long day on the job. Because she was a Black woman living in the south, she was relegated to the “back of the bus” on Montgomery, Alabama's public transportation. Yet, that day Parks did not move to the back of the bus. It was understood that her personal feelings and fatigue were the reason she did not give up her seat for a white passenger on that fateful day in December 1955, not her “lifetime of being rebellious,” as Parks herself said about her activism. Today we'll discuss Rosa Parks, the mid twentieth century civil rights movement in the United States, and the formation of memory.

When Chiura Obata painted “Moonlight Over Topaz, Utah,” he was a prisoner at the camp: one of 120,000 Japanese Americans to be incarcerated during World War II. The painting shows a dreamy moonlit desert, with just a few dark lines to hint at the barbed wire fences and guard towers that held him and his family captive. As a painter, Obata turned again and again to nature as his greatest teacher, and his greatest subject. Today, his work can be found in art collections and museums around the world, including the Smithsonian's American Art Museum. This time on Sidedoor, we learn from Chiura Obata about the power of art in tumultuous times.
