Nerds on History
Episode No. 69 — The Complete Package
Eric and Bryan welcome author and historian Maureen Ogle onto the show to talk about her new book In Meat We Trust: An Unexpected History of Carnivore America. Listen as they explore a unique perspective on the history of food in America.
Eric and Bryan were thrilled to welcome Maureen Ogle, who also happens to be the first guest on Nerds on History who has a Ph.D. As we discussed her book, we got to dive into the history of the United States from an rarely explored angle: the food we we eat, and how it came to be that way. The single resonating question that drove all of Maureen’s research was “what does it mean to be an American?” As you listen, I think you’ll find that we come up with some pretty good ideas that help answer that.
We celebrate Nerdsgiving by discussing the portrayal of Native Americans on film. Also, Nerds on History’s own Eric Bricmont guest hosts alongside a man who has been away from the mic too long… Mr. David C. McGuire.
The month of Mel Brooksuary continues with The Nerds welcoming special guest Roxi Nobari to talk about Mel Brooks’ masterpiece Young Frankenstein.
