Ep. 0128: Foundation of the Permanent Garrison State

A modern, entertaining,refreshing look at history
Prof. CJ's a historian with an edge.
CJ specializes in American history from a Libertarian perspective, an angle far too rare in academia. His episodes range through the full range of America's past, but unlike the history most of us were taught in school CJ tells the story without leaving out all of the "dark facts,"
He has several running themes, the Dangerous History Podcast (DHP) Heroes and DHP Villains, talking about people who were important and helped shape the world we live in, but whom you may never have heard of (and certainly didn't hear of in school).
I could go on and on, but just give it a listen. I suggest, if you want a really good introduction to CJ's approach, to start with the episode "DHP Hero: Lysander Spooner"
Give it a listen!
