Site Updates

Did you know that each podcast episode is correlated to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for social studies? Well, now each episode is also correlated to the National Standards for History, Basic Edition.

You can find standards alignments at the bottom of each episode’s page, following the transcript and documents/suggestions for further reading. (Hint: you can click on “Transcript” right under the audio link and it will scroll down to the right space on the page).

We’ve also added a podcast index to the site, in addition to our speaker index.

Stay tuned for upcoming episodes, including Robert Olwell on early drafts of the Declaration of Independence; Madeline Y Hsu on Chinese immigration to the United States; Philippa Levine on eugenics; Patrick Olivelle on the Gupta and Maurya Empires; and much, much more!
