American History Hit

    American History Hit - There has been a real rise in the number of podcasts covering American history in the past few months, and the top tier comes from History Hit. Each episode is informative, educational and well produced.

    Twice a week Don Wildman is joined by an expert to delve into a pivotal historical moment to separate fact from fiction. A recent episode looked at Pocahontas, telling the real story rather than the story depicted in a Disney film. “I think her life, her real life, is actually more interesting than the movie versions than we have been given,” said Camilla Townsend, an expert in Native American history from Rutgers University. “She should be revered as someone who showed bravery and smarts and not thought of as a silly girl who fell in love with an Englishman.”
