CONTEXT WITH BRAD HARRIS
What led to the rise of the modern world? How have we made so much progress, and what are its consequences? What are humanity's best ideas? Join award-winning historian Brad Harris as he engages these fundamental questions and interprets the biggest historical forces that shape their answers, from the rise of civilization and the development of modern science to the spread of disease and the growth of globalization.
Newly emancipated Blacks used their labor to buy farmland, start businesses, and provide for their families. In addition, they became literate and built successful communities all during the time of the lynching, mob violence, segregation, and political backstabbing. A look at our history shows a series of accomplishments that our current generation hears little of. With this podcast, we are going to connect our present circumstances with the successes and failures of our past. The future ascendency of our community will be much greater when our collective minds are guided by lessons of our past. We have many great success lessons to build upon.

A Canadian (Ryan) and a Scot (Amy) talking about the words in the English language that fascinate them most at the moment, looking at their histories and origins and trying to piece together just how they got to where they are today. This is a podcast for anyone interested in etymology (the study of words and their origins/history). If you've ever found yourself happier after discovering some bizarre bit of trivia about a word that you hadn't even given a second thought to (such as how the word 'trivia' relates to its Latin components meaning "three roads"), this might just be the podcast for you.
