The Monday American: A History Podcast

Revisiting American history, because hindsight isn't always 20/20

Revisiting American history one story at a time, because hindsight isn’t always 20/20. The Podcast Advocate Network brings you an American history podcast that holds true to the words of Rudyard Kipling: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” We put the “story” back into History!

The American Revolution (Part I)


In the first of three episodes comprising a series devoted to The American Revolution, we discuss how we got to the point of all out war against the largest military power the world had seen so far. Who were these people that left Great Britain in search of entrepreneurial fortune and adventure in a brand new world? What made these colonists so angry that they decided their very own lives were worth less than their cause?

Listen to part one and find out everything you didn't know about the American Revolution.
