I’m working on this week’s podcast episode, in which I will be discussing some of the historical propaganda we are exposed to this time of year regarding the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving. Information will be drawn from the James W Loewen book Lies My Teacher Told Me, and I’ll be continuing this theme through the month, exploring the first “settlers” in America, the “first Thanksgiving” and many other historical events of which you are, in all likelihood, unaware. I’ll be starting this week with Columbus, and I hope you’ll listen and find it educational. I also hope you’ll read the book for yourself.
I’ve also started a Patreon for my work here, and if you are able and would like to, you can become a patron for as little as $1/month to support it. I will be continuing to produce the podcasts, and hope to add vlogs and some original music I’ve been working on in the future. I appreciate any financial support, but what matters most to me is that you are listening and learning, so if you cannot afford it – I completely understand!
I’m dealing with some of my chronic health issues flaring this week, but I’m still aiming for releasing the podcast tomorrow.
Do you have any questions? Suggestions? Please get in touch.
P.S. I just realized that “Podcast and Patreon” follows the same syllable pattern as “Bedbugs and Ballyhoo” and now it’s stuck in my head.
