With almost 30 years experience in the field of history and broadcast radio, host Wayne Sedlak takes you into the world of historical detection. There we find the raw materials of history: archaeology, linguistics, mysterious manuscripts, ancient languages... and pieces of the larger puzzle we call History. No matter what else we see, the most important single quest is ... "The Story". 


Nineveh... and Jonah?

First we will look to the "Mysteries of the Ancient World". Nineveh in the year 772 BC defies historians. The people - from the king to the beggar in the street -  ALL were mourning. But why? What happened there... and why?


George Washington... Religious Christian or Hypocrite?

Our second episode of the night is titled "Cryptic America".  America's beginnings are topics debated in universities, media, churches and a host of publications. Most Americans are familiar with the picture of George Washington in prayer. But who was the real George Washington?


From the Other Side...

This is the segment where we take on conventional wisdom. Come join us this evening... We know the show will challenge your thinking.
