Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed historian Scott Powell about "History is Dead, Long Live History" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio.

He is a permanent traveler who teaches a distance learning homeschooling history program called "History At Our House" that provides an integrated curriculum for children from 2nd to 12th grade all over the world.
