Every week, Chris and other history nerds provide listeners with in-depth and entertaining lessons on the history of the United States from a teacher’s perspective.
Have you ever wished you knew more about the history of the United States? Are you kicking yourself for not paying more attention in school? Do you ever wish you could go back to class and learn about the most interesting, important and impactful events in U.S. history all over again, but without the homework?
