New Podcast Interviews

A couple of history conversations I’ve had this fall are available as podcasts for your critical listening.

Matt Crawford at the Curious Man’s Podcast and I discussed The Road to Concord. Here’s the Apple link and a direct connection to the MP3 file.

In the studios of WBZ radio, Bradley Jay and I talked about the Boston Massacre and the Massachusetts Historical Society’s new Sestercentennial exhibit about that event. Here’s the link to the podcast version.

The image above is the colored engraving “Friends by the Ears,” published by Robert Sayer in Britain in October 1786.
