Ep 30: Talking history is live!

Ep 30: Talking history
This episode is being released on December 7th, 2017. On this date, 76 years ago, naval aviators of the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked United States forces stationed in Hawaii. This led to the US’s involvement in the second world war. Please join me in a moment of silence in remembrance of those who died during the war, as well as those who survived the war and have since passed.
