About

Greetings!

I'm the creator of Inward Empire, a podcast about the role of ideas and ideology in American history. I started this project in February 2015. My goal was to create a podcast about the foundations of life in the United States as we know it - the intellectual DNA that makes us who we are. I want to unite big-picture historical narrative with the intimacy of individual voices, find continuities between past and present, and connect listeners to influential moments, people, and texts from America's past.

Inward Empire is not an expensive show to produce. But every donation - no matter the size - makes a difference by allowing me to expand my reading list for each episode, increase my audio storage space on Podomatic, and fund the purchase of better recording equipment. Your contributions will help me create the best podcast possible for my audience.

If you have any questions or comments, or just want to say hello, drop me a line at [email protected]

Inward Empire is available through iTunesStitcherPodomatic, or your favorite podcast app. Companion posts for every episode are available on Wordpress.

The Historian's Toolbox - episode 1

The first episode in a patrons-only series that will teach you how to think like a historian.

Episode one will focus on close-reading, a key analytical skill. How do human beings use language to express ideas, inspire movements, and control populations? This episode will teach you a simple, flexible set of tools that you can apply to language in history and the world around you, using a famous primary source from American history as a case study.

Reaching future goals will unlock new episodes in this series, teaching you more skills to add to your historian's toolbox.
