Nueva Germania and Other Failed Utopias feat Karl Mamer

Episode 43: Speaking Ill of the Dead feat Thomas Lacacque

We’re joined again by the lovely Thomas Lecaque, historian, educator, author, and destroyer of pop culture.

Our winding conversation comes together around the core of ahistory that both fuels and is created by political grifters who would willingly do a fascism so long as they can make a few bucks.

We talked a bit about the myth of Christopher Columbus, so we held this episode back for a week or so to drop it on Indigenous Peoples Day.
