American History Untucked 003 -- Jackie Whitt

My guest for this episode is my dear friend from grad school, Jackie Whitt. She has recently published Bringing God to Men: American Military Chaplains and the Vietnam War. There's a wonderful bit a few minutes in when her cat, General Sherman, attacks something in the next room.

American History Untucked 002 -- Megan Kate Nelson

My guest for this episode is Megan Kate Nelson, author of Ruin Nation and Trembling Earth. If you can't tell from our conversation, I really admire Megan's work. We talk about her research, ruins, and some interesting plans she has for the future.

OAH 2014

I didn't make it to the OAH this year, having decided to eschew trans-Atlantic travel during my first year at Edinburgh. The History News Network had a good round up.

Upcoming Shows

We've got a couple of shows coming up later this week that I'm very excited about.

The first is with Megan Kate Nelson of Brown University, author of Ruin Nation: Destruction and the American Civil War (UGA Press).

The second is with Jackie Whitt of the Air War College, author of Bringing God to Men: American Army Chaplains and the Vietnam War (UNC Press).

We're recording the shows at the end of this week and (hopefully) will have them up on iTunes sometime over the weekend.

A New Logo

I decided I didn't like the way the logo showed up on iTunes, so I made a new one. Any better?
