Episode 1: History in Our Hands

Today’s episode is an essay I wrote for Chicken Soup for the Soul and it was published in their book, Inspiration for Teachers in 2017. It’s about the history teacher I had in 9th grade that changed my entire perception of what history was and why it mattered. I chose it for the first podcast because it speaks to the reason why I pursued history in academia and why I wanted to create this podcast. Here’s to you, Robert Parks. Thank you for all that you gave to your students. Thank you for what you give us still.
