(S6.E1.) Season Six Openner


Welcome to another season of "Then and Now: World History of the Past 100 Years." This is our sixth season for the students in my introductory world history class to create a weekly podcast along with me. Each episode focuses on a topic in world history. Often the episodes examine topics in the textbook chapters and help prepare for major exams. Other episodes present interviews with community persons with expertise in a history topic, music specials that focus on music from a particular country and how it helps to reflect their history and culture, and rebroadcast of history episodes created by other podcasters.
