Conversations with History

In an effort to save some money (and watch less TV), we got rid of our satellite television subscription.  Most of the crap on TV, I won’t miss.  But there was one channel (actually there were a few) that I really enjoyed.  It was a channel of programming created by the University of California.  So in an effort, not to miss the show that I really enjoyed, Conversations with History, I looked online to see if they had videos of it there.  As with so much on TV these days, it was indeed online.  So I can watch live streaming UCTV or just the episodes of the shows that I like.  I am not telling you all this just to brag about watching television or to tell you that I’m a nerd or whatever.  I am telling you this because the show Conversations with History should be watched by any poli-nerd (that’s shorthand for a political nerd) worth his/her salt. It is basically an interview with an author or professor (usually both) with a historical perspective of something going on today.  If that sounds boring, you are obviously not a poli-nerd (and I thought you were cool… oh well).

Some of the other channels I enjoyed are LinkTV and Free Speech TV (both of these channels carried Democracy Now!)

    Cool. Thanks for this. We aren’t using our TV at all anymore (it’s in the garage), so these sites will be helpful. YouTube only has so much.
