Here are a few resources from around the internet that I have discovered over the last few weeks. Some are serious, a few lighthearted, but I enjoy history displayed in creative ways and thought some of you might too. I’ll also be adding a new “resources/blogroll” page here in the next few days.
American Military History Podcast – http://americanmilitaryhistorypodcast.com/ – A fairly new podcast dedicated to American Military History, it is currently focused on the American Revolutionary Era but has plans to progress through the present day.
Backstory with the American History Guys – http://backstoryradio.org/ – A public radio program heard on about 170 stations, they podcast the show for those who miss the radio broadcast or whose local public radio station doesn’t carry it.
Ben Franklin’s World – http://www.benfranklinsworld.com/ – Hosted by Liz Covart, Ben Franklin’s World focuses on Early American History.
Mr. Betts Class – https://www.youtube.com/user/MrBettsClass – A YouTube channel dedicated to creatively educating the public on History and Social Studies topics. As a fan of song parodies I really like this channel.
Crash Course – https://www.youtube.com/user/crashcourse – A YouTube channel dedicated to a variety Crash Course topics, my favorites, of course, are the ones on US History.
There, now armed with a few fun resources from around the ‘net, you too can spend a bunch of time watching videos, listening to podcasts, and wondering how the heck it got to be 3 AM.
