A Marketplace for Your Mind

A Marketplace for the mind

About the Show

In the summer of 2013 my wife and I moved into a new home and in a hilarious turn of events I lost her new iPod, bought her a new one and (of course) immediately found the missing one.  I took this as proof that despite years of resisting Apple,  choice was an illusion, and figured that since I had one, I might as well put it to use during my daily three hour commute.  

I quickly grew tired of my entire music collection and I was beginning to feel my brain atrophy when I became convinced that there must be a more constructive use this time.  This is when I discovered history podcasts.

I was soon hooked on shows like Cameron Reilly's Napoleon Bonaparte Podcast, Mike Duncan's The History of Rome and Revolutions and Robin Pierson's History of Byzantium. 

However, despite the existence of a vibrant and diverse historical podcast community I was surprised that there didn't seem to be much on offer for American history and I  conceived this podcast to help fill that niche.
