The Shadow of Ideas explores the world of current events, social justice, and politics through the lens of history. It’s a podcast about context, and about how concepts from the past form the narratives that we use to understand the present and the future.
“Misunderstanding of the present is the inevitable consequence of ignorance of the past. But a man may wear himself out just as fruitlessly in seeking to understand the past, if he is totally ignorant of the present.” -Marc Bloch
The series is presented by Raymond Wiley. A veteran of podcasts and terrestrial radio, Raymond got his start at WUOG 90.5FM in Athens, GA in 2004. There he worked as a producer, host, and later as general manager. As on-air talent, he has appeared on numerous series as a guest speaker, and verified more than 2 million downloads of his own podcast catalog. Notable appearances include Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum (2012) and History Channel’s Decoded (2011). He earned a BA in History from the University of Georgia (2008) and an MA in Communications from the University of Sussex (2012).
