The Modcast/History is a Pile of Bricks

Episode Two. History is a pile of bricks. Wherein Dave reflects on the passing of his friend Dick Wagner, who was, among many other things, an historian. Dave talks about Critical Race Theory, Joe Biden’s Democracy Summit and how historical narratives can support or undercut liberal democracy. As for how history is like a pile of bricks (and not a box of chocolates) you’ll have to listen in.
