Episode Info:

While our Churchill Part 1 episode focused on some highlights from his life story and character, Part 2 focuses on a few of his famous speeches. An old saying goes “Talk is cheap,” but in Churchill’s case, his talks helped keep the British Empire and the cause of global freedom alive during World War II and thereafter. In this episode you will hear excerpts read from a few of Churchill’s key speeches, along with some explanations of the historical backgrounds of his speeches, thus putting them into a context for you. We will also discuss some of his masterful word choices and literary devices that gave his speeches such punch. Word of the Day: defiance (noun) a strong-willed refusal to surrender or obey Question of the Day: Is it possible for strong-willed defiance in a child to become a positive character quality in an adult? If so, how? Have a question or feedback? Maybe a topic you’d like to hear in a future episode? Please email Scott at We’d love to hear from you!
