In your down time… check out these great podcasts about memorials:
You’ve probably heard of 99 Percent Invisible, the podcast about the myriad of design issues with which we unconsciously live daily. Brought to a broad, lay audience by the excellent host Roman Mars here are two podcasts about monuments:
Monumental Dilemma about Hannah Duston Monument
Backstory is a super-nerdy podcast that looks at contemporary questions through the lens of U.S. history. This episode “Monumental Disagreements” features everyone’s favorite memorial historian Kirk Savage!
Presidential is a podcast I have been listening to about the nation’s presidents. It starts with George Washington and works its way forward to the present president. This very early one (#2) on John Adams features the story of his missing monument.
