The Last Best Hope?

10:28 AM GMT+1 on July 9, 2023

    The Last Best Hope? - Last week we reviewed a podcast that explains American history and institutions for beginners (called America: A History Podcast.) We then received this great podcast recommendation presented by the broadcaster and historian Professor Adam Smith, from the Rothermere American Institute at Oxford University. 

    He digs a little deeper into America today by examining key events from the country’s past, such as the Culture Wars of the 1850s in explaining the political and cultural divides today. There’s also an episode looking at the half a million people from the Scottish borders who then settled in Georgia, creating a rich culture that can still be felt today.
