Each week we’ll listen to a 20-25 minute mind-blowing/expanding episode of the podcast “Uncivil.” After listening, we’ll have 30-40 minutes of discussion.
No homework or preparation! Bring a lunch if you’d like. Light snacks will be provided.
Here’s a little teaser about Uncivil:
Uncivil, Gimlet Media’s new history podcast, brings you stories that were left out of the official history of the Civil War, ransacks America’s past, and takes on the history you grew up with. We bring you untold stories about resistance, covert operations, corruption, mutiny, counterfeiting, antebellum drones, and so much more. And we connect these forgotten struggles to the political battlefield we’re living on right now. The story of the Civil War — the story of slavery, confederate monuments, racism — is the story of America.
Uncivil is hosted by Chenjerai Kumanyika, author, journalist, and professor of journalism and communications at Rutgers University, and Jack Hitt, a Peabody Award-winning journalist, author and radio producer.
