A casual material history of the United States and the Americas from Bill, Rachel, co-hosts, and guests. We take a left-wing view of the history of the United States, material factors, and technological processes and examine what it tells us about our present and future. (Previously we had been a current events talk show.) Recorded in Newton MA and Boise ID twice a week. One episode per week is available from the free feed and this website. One episode per week is available on Patreon for paid monthly subscribers for $5/month. The free feed displays a limited number of recent episodes, but virtually all free episodes going back to the beginning of the show are available on the website. (From 2011-2020, it was distributed by WVUD in Newark DE, before our transition to podcast-only with a new format and focus.) There are detailed notes and/or links lists for most episodes.
