Q-on-2 w/Lauren Davies and Brian Young
"We are not makers of history. We are made by history." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
If that's the case, then my guests on this podcasts know exactly what we're made of! Despite being separated by the Atlantic Ocean, Lauren (Wales, UK) and Brian (New York, USA) bring their listeners a podcast that not only entertains you, but it also educates you as well!
They are the hosts of the historical podcast, Transatlantic History Ramblings with Lauren and Brian. Their podcast has no limits as it explores all aspect of history in the world! You will hear discussions about people from all walks of life from Jack the Ripper to Muhammad Ali. They also have expert guests on their show who cover a wide array of topics such as physics, Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Tudors, and even video games.
On this Q-on-2, we discuss how they became enamored with all things involving history. We bring it to the present when I ask Lauren about the coverage of the social injustice protests going on here in the U.S. Are the things going on in the U.S. on the radar of people living in the UK? We also talk about what history happened today. I get them to travel forward into time to predict what's going on today that will be in future history books.
This was a very entertaining interview and I hope to get them back on again in the future. Enjoy!
Lauren is currently writing a book about the Women's Suffrage Movement and Brian is soon to be releasing a book on the history of wrestling.
