Rudon - Left Wing Garbage
 Mar 11, 2024
Left wing slant on everything. Check timing of titles and general elections. Mildly useful when not in the election cycle.

Big Don W fan. watch all his stuff. He should rename this American History Apologies though. Tough to listen to someone who has difficulties saying America is great and generally rues our history with no acknowledging accomplishments. There is some interesting things and listened to it all.

Enjoyable podcast. A little pro American bias does creep in. Ted Roosevelt may be rated as one of the top 10 US Presidents, but one has to recall his Racism. He showed the KKK film Birth of our Nation in the Whitehouse and declared it was the truth.

Description

Join Don Wildman twice a week for your hit of American history, as he explores the past to help us understand the United States of today.

 

We’ll hear how codebreakers uncovered secret Japanese plans for the Battle of Midway, visit Chief Powhatan as he prepares for war with the British, see Walt Disney accuse his former colleagues of being communists, and uncover the dark history that lies beneath Central Park.  

 

From pre-colonial America to independence, slavery to civil rights, the gold rush to the space race, join Don as he speaks to leading experts to delve into America’s past.

 

New episodes every Monday and Thursday.
