The Last Archive


I highly recommend “The Last Archive” podcast hosted by Harvard historian Jill Lepore.  Creative episodes dramatically trace the history of “Who Killed Truth?” and “The Rise of Doubt.”  Entertaining, informative and couldn’t be more timely.

“Produced in the style of classic 1930s radio drama, The Last Archive is a show about how we know what we know and why it seems, lately, as if we don’t know anything at all.”

Note:  My column this week draws from The Last Archive, as well as Michael Eric Dyson’s book on RFK and James Baldwin, “What Truth Sounds Like.”  Look for the column posted here:

“What Truth Looks Like in a Post-Truth World”
