Doomed to Repeat It

Leila and Tristan return at long last to debate whether Franco was more of an iguana or a chicken farmer, whether or not you should punch your local fascist, and what, if anything, we can learn from the Spanish Civil War. You can view the images referenced in the podcast

Doomed to Repeat It

Leila asks Tristan to tell her about a civil war that raged from 1936-1939. Tristan begins his answer in 1492. This is why we can't have nice things, but can have another two-parter episode. Join us again next month for the gut-wrenching conclusion to the Spanish Civil War.

Doomed to Repeat It

The last week of January 2017 has sapped Leila of all joy, including even the joy she used to find in the company of soggy, cutthroat ne'er-do-wells. This puts Tristan (and his visceral hatred of maritime criminality) into the awkward position of being piracy's cheerleader.
