In today’s podcast review we’re going to talk about Professor CJ’s Dangerous History Podcast.
I’ll rob a basic description of the show directly from the “about” page:
What is the Dangerous History Podcast?
The goal of the Dangerous History Podcast is to help you learn the past so that you can better understand the present and prepare for the future.
The Dangerous History Podcast takes CJ’s countless hours spent as a Professional History Dork and boils all the most interesting and/or important stuff he has learned into podcast episodes, combining education with entertainment with the ultimate goal of empowerment.
This is the history the Establishment would rather you not know.
Prof CJ does an excellent job of delivering on this mission. He provides solid insight with cited sources to support his positions and telling of the tale. Speaking for myself, I’ve learned more in a few episodes of DHP and had my own preconceptions of some events challenged more than in all the history I took in High School and College. Just to be clear, this is quality material – there’s no tin foil hattery or conspiracy theories here!
With over 100 episodes to choose from, I confess that I haven’t heard them all. However, the series on Irregular Warfare (77-81, 83) with Bill Buppert and episode 106 covering the Easter Rising were excellent. I think there are some parallels with the Easter Rising that would have been worthy of consideration for those who acted at Malheur. Episode 51 on Operation Keelhaul (something I’d never heard of before) was heartrending and angering.
There’s a saying that, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” Learn the patterns now so that you’re not surprised the next time you see them.
Until next time,
EDUCATE. EMPOWER. RESIST.
