Renegades of American History

Thaddeus Russell has a premise that is wonderful - the history you've been taught is too narrow in its scope. You've figured that out already, or you wouldn't be here, but Russell goes even further - he has researched early American History and found that the people we don't hear about are the ones responsible for many of the freedoms that we (theoretically) have here today. Note his willingness to speak the truth about the present day anti-war movement. It is this kind of speech that got him FIRED from the 'liberal' 'tolerant' Columbia University.

This is one of the most historically unique ten minutes you'll ever listen to. I was introduced to Russell's work on a podcast, and he's been on my radar ever since.

His book - A Renegade History of the United States is on my short list.
