The Other States of America podcasts

American History is far more complicated than a yearlong High School class could ever teach you. This podcast will tell you the rest of that story, focusing on colonies you’ve never heard of, that may be at your front door, like New Netherland and New Sweden, New France, the Haudenosaunee and the lampooned “Articles of Confederation,” that serve as footnotes in the history presented to you. Join Eric Yanis, a NYS Certified Social Studies and SWD teacher, as he guides you through the history left out of the textbook.
