Ch. 30: Post WWII Era and the Cold War
After WWII, Western Europe was in ruins. The nations of this devastated continent had crumbling economies, turbulent political reshuffling, and changing national identities. However, through a new series of alliances (and a little help from the US), these countries bounced back from the brink and became the nations we recognize today. We will also talk about that charming period of American and Soviet militarization known as the Cold War. We will discuss how Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and popular culture helped create a passionate (in the "let's riot" kind of way) youth movement. And finally, we will talk about the most badass of French badasses: Charles De Gaulle. In this episode I am also joined by Kyle Sheridan, a good friend of mine. Kyle is a gentleman and a scholar and kindly offered to assist me on this, the second to the last Podcast in Hank's History Hour. I hope you enjoy it, and good luck on your tests!
Ch. 29 WWII and the Rise of the Dictators
In this Podcast, we will discuss some of the vilest, most despicable, and most influential men of the 20th century:Mussolini, the would-be emperor of a revitalized Rome who was rumored to be afraid of cats.Stalin, the former seminary student who would purge and “disappear” as many as 20 million of his own people.Hitler, probably the most well-known dictator of all time, and a man who probably suffered from Parkinson’s Disease, syphilis, or both while he lead his country to ruin.
Ch. 28 Age of Anxiety
After WWI, all of Europe was, for lack of a better phrase, freaking out. Paranoid, sneaky, and deceitful, the European leaders had their own agendas to make their country the top dog. Fortunately, there was great literature and some great (and some stupid) art to save the masses from the thoroughly depressing reality.
