Listen to the War

History can be an abstract thing on paper, and it takes immersion in it to really realize the extravagant things that happened in the past. The podcast "M Radio SIG" makes available hundreds of clips of vintage radio broadcasts, from drama to news. Recently it's been producing clips from World War II broadcasts that do better than any textbook or even a movie at bringing the war into real focus. The range of the clips is pretty long, with commentary from the non-interventionist Charles Lindbergh to clips of interviews with soldiers fresh from combat in Europe.
