Sunday Podcast Recommendation – 28th July 2020

June 28, 2020

A bit of listening for today if you’re doing things that give you space to have a podcast on. This episode is part way though a series but it is such a powerful moment in history (and one related to and notable in today’s politics/events). It’s the 4th Episode of the Revolutions Podcast series on the Haitian Revolution, which charts the history of revolution, starting with the English Civil War. In this episode the host notes, “We are now seeing actual slaves rising up against actual tyranny.” This is when the slave uprising actually happens. Note that the language used to describe the various factions has a context, explained in the first episode, and I’d recommend the whole series.

(There’s an index of all the series/episodes here)

On the subject of politics, we did an episode looking at a brief history of democracy and gaming.
