The Latin American History Podcast
Max Serjeant History 63 rész The history of Latin America
The Latin American History Podcast aims to tell the story of Spanish and Portuguese America from its very beginnings up until the present day. Latin America’s history is home to some of the most exciting and unbelievable stories of adventure and exploration, and this podcast will tell these stories in all their glory. It will examine colonial society, slavery, and what life was like for the region’s inhabitants during this period. We will look at what caused the wars of independence, how they were won, and what Latin America looked like afterwards. The region’s twentieth century history was marked by extremes – in political ideas, in levels of wealth, and in cultural expression. It was a time of guerrillas, dictators, death squads, powerful corporations, and turmoil. The cold war was played out in extreme here – although filtered through the legacy of colonialism and the region’s own unique heritage. All this and more make Latin American history a fascinating story, and one worth telling. Join me on this podcast as I set about doing so.

Panda Cub Stories
Linda Yi History 1 évad 39 rész Bilingual musing about Chinese Culture (History, Language, Folklore)

Hi! I'm Linda - An ABC(ish) writer/illustrator currently based in NYC.


PODCAST WHAT:

This podcast is an extension of the Panda Cub Stories webcomic, where I'm documenting my own journey of (re)learning Chinese language and reconnecting with my family's heritage. Here, I'll be musing on what I've learned about Chinese language, culture, folklore, and/or festivals.


PODCAST WHY:

While I LOVE making the webcomics, there's a lot of content I can't fit into those few panels... so I thought I'd relaunch this podcast to share the extra goodies with you!


PODCAST (LANGUAGE) FORMAT:

I'll be switching back and forth from English to Mandarin (with maybe a bit of Sichuanese thrown in). This new podcast format will be more conversational, and less formal, than the previous episodes! But the content will mostly revolve around Chinese language and culture... stuff I find interesting (and that you may find interesting too!).


P.S. I've been told I have a nice soothing voice, so if you you AREN'T interested in Chinese culture but DO have insomnia, maybe this podcast is also for you ¯\_(ツ)_/¯



P.P.S. Podcast origins:


Panda Cub Stories started as stories told bilingually in Mandarin Chinese and English. Episodes prior to 2020 are mostly stories adapted from, or inspired by, Chinese myths, legends and folklore!
