Texas History Lessons

Texas History Lessons

Texas History Lessons is a podcast about Texas history and much more. History is an important area of study and it is fun. While most of the focus will, of course, be on Texas, I feel that any endeavor to study a place or a people is lacking if you do not have a proper context for what was happening elsewhere in the region, country, continent, and all over the world. It provides perspective. The study of Texas history is the study of a place and of people, and all of the people that have ever lived in Texas have come from somewhere else and have ties to other places and cultures. No whitewashing the past in this podcast. Real Texas History.
