ABOUT THIS PODCAST

What led to the rise of the modern world? How have we made so much progress, and what are its consequences? There are countless great books exploring these critical questions... we know we should read them, but most of us don't have time. Join historian Brad Harris as he distills their insights in a captivating, accessible way. Unless we understand our historical context, our discourse will be bloated with bad assumptions and progress will stall. We each owe it to our future to be a better historian, and Brad Harris helps us think like one.

Niall Ferguson is one of the most influential historians of our generation. His professional effort extends well beyond academia to ensure that policy makers and the public better understand how to apply historical lessons to current issues. Niall and I connected to further discuss some of those issues. We talk about the changing politics of academia, the growing challenge of interpreting history productively, the problem of judging the past by the moral standards of the present, and more.
