Historical novels provide us with information, drama, interesting settings and fascinating characters. Not to mention, that we actually can learn something of actual events. In this podcast, I examine and play samples from two of the historical novels which I have recorded. From the days of the founding of our country, we’ll ask the question, “Would you sign?” from theDeclaration of Independence Series. From the troubled Civil War era, we’ll watch the surprising actions of a sutler in Murray Pura’s series, Let Freedom Ring.
The west of the mid-1800’s was mired in conflict over the issue of slavery. Against this backdrop, C. Q. Scafidi brings us The Outlaw Unchained: Bleeding Kansas. This conflict plays a role in this action filled novel. And Scafidi shares much about Bleeding Kansas. Never heard of it? Some background and some tantalizing excerpts from the novel are featured in this podcast.

Jason Hayes joins the show tonight to talk about their GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds to take students in their program to the UK this summer to perform!
Call 323 657-1493 to ask questions or join in the fun!
Jason is the Director of Theatre and Lead Teacher for Arts, Media and Entertainment at James Monroe High School in North Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles. With productions that include, Oedipus the King, Wiley and the Hairy Man, Zombie Prom and School House Rock Live! along with on campus festivals that include Comedia Del Arte, Shakespeare and traditional Folkloric dance, his students have been selected by the American High School Theatre Festival as one of only 40 schools from North America to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland this August, 2015. While his students are severely economically disadvantaged and labeled "at risk" for a myriad of reasons, they have honed their energies into theatre arts and created for themselves the opportunity of a lifetime in their performance of Romeo y Julieta at this year's Edinburgh Fringe.
Romeo y Julieta is a bi-lingual Romeo and Juliet translated by the students. Using Shakespeare's language and spoken in Original, Elizabethan Pronunciation along with colloquial Spanish, Monroe Theatre tells the story of "star crossed lovers" from rival Hispanic families living in San Fernando, CA.
This is not West Side Story. Romeo y Julieta touches on the, very real, inner-racial tension within the Hispanic community my students deal with daily.

As the sun keeps shinning, the sports world seems to get more and more asinine. That makes things better and better for George "the Howitzer" Gerbo and Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti.
The tentacles of DefalteGate are never-ending. Robert Kraft now won't appeal the NFL's punishments against the New England Patriots. What triggered this 180 from Kraft? Mike believes this is part of a bigger conspiracy between Roger Goodell and the Patriots owner. Will this impact Tom Brady's separate appeal?
We are down the final four in both the NBA and NHL, but it's the eliminated teams that are staying in the news. Who is to blame for the Clippers epic collapse? Is Doc Rivers overrated? Does too much of the blame get thrown at Chris Paul? Are the Chicago Bulls headed for an offseason of drama?
Does Atlanta stand a chance against Cleveland? Is the NBA championship now Golden State's to lose? Has Dwight Howard officially lost his buffoon label and become the main factor of the playoffs?
On the ice, have the Ducks now become the favorites? Can either the Lightning or Rangers win the Stanley Cup over either west team? George tries to figure out Rick Nash's problems and Mike waxes poetic on Marian Hossa.
The Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show, conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....
On this this episode we going to talking to the king on facebook drama Cornell Mallory. Alson the GLT team and special invited guests are going to be going in and will be fielding questions from callers about all kinds of drama on social media, cuz we see it everyday. Delusional motherfuckers that think people posting shit about them. Chicks that O/D on selfies and attention whores. Dudes and women who think everybody on social media is fronting just like them. Why some groups hate wall watchers. Delusional chicks who think they have dibs on dudes in groups and fight with other chicks who show them the slightest attention. And so much more.
Everyone has heard the term "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If that maxim is true, and if it is to be useful to everyone, then it is essential that we have access to an accurate account of history and the reasons why historical events occurred.
Most people would agree that war should be avoided if possible, yet in the 239 years since the American declaration of independence, the USA has been at war for 229 of those years. Were all of those wars necessary? If that isn't a repeating historical pattern, we don't know what is.
The First World War was called "the war to end all wars" and yet, just 20 years later, an even worse conflagration consumed the Eurasian continent, killing 65 million people.
The phrase "never again" is most often heard in reference to the genocidal policies of the Nazis towards the Jews of Germany and Poland, yet today a record number of Jews are fleeing Europe for Israel in the face of mounting anti-semitism.
Apart from 4 military assaults on sovereign nations, the deaths of at least 2 million people and the creation of an extremely instable security situation in many parts of the globe, the almost 15-year-long US-led war on terror has created a distinct anti-Muslim climate in many Western nations that bears many of the hallmarks of the first waves of anti-Jewish sentiment in Nazi Germany.
So if we have an accurate understanding of history, why does it appear to continue to repeat? Is there something wrong with our official historical narrative?
