Monumental Mistakes Were Made (Episode 2)

Monumental Mistakes Were Made (Episode 2)

In the second episode, Matt and Robert discuss the increasing attack on Confederate era monuments, two counties in Texas ignoring the 14th amendment, the secrecy of the British government regarding the Mau Mau, and the implications of the Iranian nuclear deal.

Context is about connecting the past to the present. It's about bringing history to life by making it relevant to everyone. Matt and Robert examine how history repeats itself, how interpretations of history change, and how new discoveries are being made about the past every day.
