What we don’t know about American history hurts us all. Teaching Hard History begins with the long and brutal legacy of chattel slavery and reaches through the victories of and violent responses to the civil rights movement to the present day. From Learning for Justice and host Dr. Hasan Kwame Jeffries, Teaching Hard History brings us the lessons we should have learned in school through the voices of leading scholars and educators. It’s good advice for teachers and good information for everybody.

Without LGBTQ history, there is no American history. From Learning for Justice and hosts Leila Rupp and John D'Emilio, Queer America takes listeners on a journey that spans from Harlem to the Frontier West, revealing stories of LGBTQ life that belong in our consciousness and in our classrooms.

Through conversations with teachers, librarians, scholars and reporters, host and LFJ Managing Editor Monita Bell explores the critical aspects of digital literacy that shape how we create and consume content online. Discover what educators and students alike need to know—and how we can all become safer, better informed digital citizens.

30 for 30

This audio spinoff of ESPN’s famed 30 for 30 documentary series, hosted by Jody Avirgan, explores sports stories from history exclusively in the podcast format. Most episodes cover a different sports saga, with the exception of a few mini-series that dive deep into one person or topic. The best of those series, “Bikram,” explores the #MeToo scandal surrounding Bikram Choudhury, a powerful cult-like figure in the yoga community, from the perspective of a former Bikram devotee, Julia Lowrie Henderson. Henderson admirably hands the microphone to Choudhury&rsquos victims to share their experiences, setting an example for how to tell a story about perpetrators of abuse while honoring survivors&rsquo pain.

Customer Reviews


This has been a great joy to hear these two blokes go on about the topics at hand! It reminds me of my days in England at the pub…arguments and poking fun, but all in good spirit! I always look forward to hearing Pete and Gary, and I always come away having learned something new!

Also, my favorite technical term: ‘bebuggered’ I hope to hear this more!

One of my favorites

Can’t tell you how much I love the show ! Love the fact I can learn so much about some of the best topics of military history, but also get some laughs along the way. Very knowledgeable, very comprehensive, and very easy to follow. Cheers!

Cracking Good Show.

Pete and Gary cover all the subjects one would want to hear from a military history podcast, with a major focus being the First World War. They extensively rely on primary sources, reading quotes and using spot-on accents to describe history’s most interesting military engagements. Pete apparently worked at The Imperial War Museum forever, and Gary was in the British military, forever. so these guys KNOW what they’re talking about. Keep in mind they’re British, and they focus mostly on British military history. but that’s the best thing! My favorite episodes are The Battles of Coronel and The Falklands, Waterloo(2 episodes), and Isandlwanda and Rourke’s Drift. And they have many episodes on The Somme and Gallipoli. I highly, highly recommend this podcast.

The Best History Podcasts

Whether you&rsquore a history buff or just want a break from the present, there&rsquos a fascinating show out there for you.

They say those who fail to study history are doomed to repeat it&mdashor maybe they&rsquore just missing out on some really great stories. These podcasts take a look at the weird, complex, fascinating people and events that have shaped the world in ways big and small.

Dan Carlin makes most people's deep dives look shallow. Discursive, digressive, both grand and granular, Carlin has a commanding grasp of history's nuances and how events and figures big and small fit together to create the world we inhabit today.

Unlike some of the other podcasts on this list, Hardcore History doesn't really lean on music or sound effects or historical soundbites most of Carlin's multi-hour-long episodes are just him, alone, telling you what happened and what people remember and what it might all mean. It's like sitting in on a lecture by a particularly sharp (and indefatigable) history professor.

Consider starting with episode 50, "Blueprint for Armageddon I"&mdashthe first installment of Carlin's excellent WWI arc, which is loosely arranged around Gavrilo Princip, who helped assassinate Archduke Franz Ferdinand. It also has the advantage of being, at three hours and seven minutes, the shortest episode available. You know, to just dip your toe in.

Does someone pay you to say nice things about their products? You seem to really like a lot of things! Can I pay you to say nice things about my (thing)?

We do have very kind, paid sponsors. When we do talk about and thank them for their financial support we are very transparent about their sponsorship of our show. ( And we are selective about our advertisers–we don’t recommend anything we haven’t enjoyed ourselves.) Of course we would love it if our listeners repaid the kindness by supporting them in return. Love it. A lot. If you would like to be one of those sponsors, contact our friends at Wondery, you can reach them here.

For the body of our podcasts and shownotes, we don’t take any product in exchange for a good review- ever. Most of the things we like and recommend we found on our own. Sometimes we do get books but any publisher takes their chances- we will only recommend it if we truly liked it. (We have stacks of books we weren’t all that crazy about that or didn’t tie into our subjects that we have never mentioned or promoted.) We will ALWAYS make note if we received a complimentary item. It does us no good to be coy about it.


I've just (as a late starter) listened to episode 142. "The Comeback Podcast".

I've recently learnt that David isn't a fan of memes, and wondered whether this extended to home-made memes.

I hope it doesn't, as (using Viz magazine as inspiration) it got my creative juices flowing:

The other day listening to the episode about the fil_em Amadeus. David said he would rather eat his liver than go to the opera.

Stephen Noake задал вопрос .

Just wondering who lives / has lived in a "historically significant" town / city. and whether you have been criminally negligent in not making the most of it?

After moving there aged 7, I lived in Shrewsbury for the best part of 30 years. Then we moved to Worcester . where we have now lived for 20 years.

Although my interest in history is … Ещё pretty recent, I'm a bit ashamed that I have done barely anything that a typical tourist might have done! I've visited Worcester cathedral a few times (mainly on "other business") but otherwise, it's zip.

I have to say that if your particular thing is half-timbered buildings, Shrewsbury certainly has the upper hand.

As a side issue, I have a good friend who is a senior lecturer in history at Chester Uni, and we grew up together in Shrewsbury. One of his pet issues is the (ahem) correct pronunciation of Shrewsbury: he strongly believes it to be "Shrow" and once participated in a BBC Radio Shropshire program at Rowley's House museum, debating the case of someone prominent who strongly believes it to be "Shrew" :)

In order to get the most out of your podcast on Google, you should know how podcasting works on Google.

Google Podcasts is a podcasting directory this means that podcast listening apps and other podcast listening services use Google Podcasts to find podcasts and enable playback. Google Podcasts does not store your RSS feed or audio files, but rather points to the RSS feed and audio files that you have posted elsewhere.

Google Podcasts powers the discovery and playback of podcasts on many Google services, including the Google Podcasts app for Android and iOS, Google Home devices, The Google Podcasts website in the browser, and more. Additionally, listeners can subscribe on any podcast playback app to any podcast listed in Google Podcasts.

Therefore your RSS feed must be available to, and readable, by Google's crawlers.

How Google finds and presents a podcast

  1. Google constantly crawls the web looking for RSS feeds the same way it crawls the internet to look for new or updated web pages. Publishers can also explicitly tell Google about new feeds (most podcast hosting services automatically tell Google whenever a new feed or episode is published).
  2. When Google finds or is told about a new feed, it crawls the feed and creates an entry for the show in Google Podcasts where people can listen to the show on various listening platforms, such as the Google Podcasts app or Google Home, or any RSS-compliant podcast player.
  3. However, before creating a new show in Google Podcasts, Google first checks whether a new feed describes a show that is already on Google Podcasts.

One show, many feeds

In practice, a podcast can have more than one feed. This happens for various reasons: for example, a podcast might have a "Top 10" feed, a "Holiday playlist" feed and a "Latest episodes" feed.

If Google finds multiple feeds that seem to describe the same podcast, Google groups them together. From this feed group, Google selects one feed as the best representative for the podcast, and serves only that feed on Google Podcasts. This is called the served feed. Google Podcasts doesn't disclose the full list of members of a podcast's feed group, only the served feed.

  1. Google finds RSS feeds as it crawls the web
  2. Google groups the feeds that it thinks describe the same show
  3. Google selects one feed from each group and serves that feed on all Google Podcasts platforms. This feed is called the served feed.
  4. Listeners see the served feed for their show in their app or service.

The served feed can change

Occasionally, Google can change which feed it serves for a show on Google Podcasts. There are a few reasons this can happen:

  • Google might determine that a different feed in the group is more representative of the podcast than the currently chosen feed.
  • The feed owner might change the URL of the feed (perhaps moving it to a new host) and Google found the feed in its new location. (Ideally the feed owner tells Google about the move to ensure that Google finds it.)

When the served feed changes, Google will start serving the new feed instead of the previous feed. Listeners subscribed to the show on Google Podcasts will see the show and episode information from the new feed. If episodes from the previous feed are not in the new feed, those episodes will no longer appear in the show playlist (unless the episodes were downloaded). It takes 2-3 days to migrate all Google Podcasts listeners or services to a new feed.

Our Site Podcast - History

“We mustn’t allow free speech to fade into a feel-good slogan. It is an unintuitive principle with a rationale that many don’t appreciate and a history that many don’t know. Mchangama’s lucid history of free speech fills that gap and deepens our understanding of this precious concept”.

“Freedom of speech is the most successful social policy ever – and also the most counterintuitive. Jacob Mchangama’s delightful podcast series paints vivid portraits of the lives, ideas, and struggles of the people who brought this improbable principle to life. I haven’t missed an episode, and neither should you.”

“Free speech in the ancient Athenian democracy, as Jacob Mchangama so brilliantly and wittily makes clear …was one of the cardinal and fundamental principles of ancient Greek demokratia…..So important are the issues still today that ‘Free speech in Ancient Athens’ is worth an hour of any concerned citizen’s time”

“Throughout much of history, free speech advocates have been progressives fighting elite power structures. Karl Marx rightly opposed and indeed lampooned press censorship. It is a tragedy of the 20 th and 21 st centuries that too many progressives have switched sides, weaving poorly reflected theories of language into poorly reflected theories of politics. Jacob Mchangama leads us through a vividly told history that, sadly, continues to repeat for as long as its lessons remain un-learned”.

”After impressive gains, free speech is once again in retreat across the globe. This development should concern all who care about democracy, freedom, and truth. Free speech superstar Jacob Mchangama’s new highly informative and engaging history of free speech is just the answer. The podcast is the perfect medium to rediscover the rich heritage and crucial civilizational gains of free speech and to inoculate against dangerous complacency.“

“The podcast provides an engaging and inspiring history of free speech that is accessible to anyone interested in a topic that is fundamental to every human being and society. If you want to understand what’s at stake and know about the battles that our predecessors were engaged in the fight for free speech there can be no better place to start than with Jacob Mchangama’s podcast.”



Episode 41 - Free Speech and Racial Justice: Friends or Foes?

In May 2020, protests erupted all over the U.S. after a video emerged of a white police officer killing a black man named George Floyd. Millions took to the streets in support of racial justice under the rallying cry “Black Lives Matter.” Most protests were peaceful, but several cities experienced large-scale violence. Free speech was also affected in the process. A disturbing number of incidents of police brutality and excessive force against peaceful protesters and journalists were documented. President Trump accused a Black Lives Matter leader of “treason, sedition, insurrection” and labelled protestors as “terrorists.”

But demands for structural change also led to calls for de-platforming people whose views were deemed hostile to or even insufficiently supportive of racial justice. A Democratic data analyst named David Shor was fired after tweeting a study that showed that nonviolent black-led protests were more effective than violent ones in terms of securing voter support. In another instance, New York Times staffers protested that the newspaper put “Black @NYTimes staff in danger” by running a provocative op-ed by Republican Senator Tom Cotton, which argued for deploying the military to quell riots. The newsroom revolt led to opinion editor James Bennet resigning.

Academia was affected too. A letter signed by hundreds of Princeton faculty members, employees and students demanded a faculty committee be established to “oversee the investigation and discipline of racist behaviors, incidents, research, and publication” and write “Guidelines on what counts as racist.”

Social media companies came under intense pressure to take a more robust stand on “hate speech.”

The entrenchment of so-called “cancel culture” caused around 150, mostly liberal, writers and intellectuals to sign an open “ Letter on Justice and Open Debate .” The letter argued against what the signers saw as “intolerance of opposing views, a vogue for public shaming and ostracism, and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a blinding moral certainty.” The letter drew sharp criticism from many journalists, writers and intellectuals for being “tone-deaf,” “privileged,” “elitist” and detracting from or even hurting the struggle for racial justice.

The wider debate often turned nasty — especially on social media — with loud voices on each side engaging in alarmist, bad faith arguments ascribing the worst intentions to their opponents. Many of those concerned about free speech warned of creeping totalitarianism imposed by “social justice warriors” run amok, intent on imposing a stifling orthodoxy of “wokeism.” Some confused vehement criticism of a person’s ideas with attempts to stifle that person’s speech. On the other hand, some racial justice activists outright denied the existence of “cancel culture” and failed to distinguish between vehement criticism of a person’s ideas and calling for that person to be sanctioned by an employer, publisher or university. Some even accused free speech defenders of being complicit in or actual defenders of white supremacy and compared words deemed racially insensitive with violence.

Underlying these debates is a more fundamental question. Is a robust and principled approach to free speech a foundation for — or a threat to — racial justice?

To help shed light on this question, this episode will focus on what role the dynamic between censorship and free speech has played in maintaining and challenging racist and oppressive societies. The episode will use American slavery and segregation, British colonialism, and South African apartheid as case studies.
