In the Moode for Real History
I am on a mission to make history real again one beer and discussion at a time. Looking at current events and history from a people's perspective.
Microaggressions: Not as Micro as You Think
June 21, 2021 • 38 MIN

S4:E13 The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
May 17, 2021 • 57 MIN
In just the last week, the situation in occupied Palestine and the larger region has seen a dramatic shift. A new wave of resistance has sparked militant mass protests not only in cities and towns across the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, but also in many Palestinian or “mixed” cities inside the 1948 borders of Israel. Violence that began in East Jerusalem in April has expanded to military attacks from both Israel and Palestine. Large scale injuries and fatalities have been reported. Clashes have broken out between Palestinian Arabs and Jewish groups in Israel. The international community looks divided and readying for taking sides in the current Israel-Palestine conflict if it aggravates to another war. In this week’s episode we are going to try and unpack this conflict and the larger global implications.
S4:E12 President Biden's State of the Union: All Platitudes No Action
May 3, 2021 • 72 MIN
In this week's episode we breakdown President Biden's State of the Union Address. The conservative media claims he is a "radical socialist", while the liberal media claims that he is the "most progressive" president in history. We break down how he is full of platitudes and promises, but has failed to deliver any meaningful policies or changes. It leads one to wonder who is he really governing for, the working class who elected him or the big money business donors. Also, make sure to check out our opening story of Kaleb surviving his encounter with the "wonderful" couple, "Treesa and Gil" in a Publix bathroom.
S4:E11 How Many More? Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo Should Be Alive
April 19, 2021 • 62 MIN
Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright should be alive, simple as that. In this episode we tackle, yet another, example of police brutality that took place in the last week. We discuss the role that gaslighting played in each of these events, as well as debunking the myths surrounding "defunding the police" and what structural changes we must demand of the criminal justice system as a whole.

S4:E9 Debating Gun Control
April 5, 2021 • 67 MIN
We are 4 months into 2021. In those 4 months we have had five mass shootings and more than 10,000 gun violence deaths already occurring this year. It is an event that repeats over and over again. A mass shooting occurs — sometimes more than one, in quick succession. The country mourns the victims. And nothing changes. After two separate mass shootings last month in Atlanta and Boulder, Colorado left 18 people dead, the never ending debate over gun control measures has sprung up again. We are going to center this episode on debunking myths regarding guns, examining numerous gun control measures, and share our own views on the matter.
S4:E8 History Teachers Discuss Presidential Legacies Pt. 1
March 31, 2021 • 87 MIN
This long awaited midweek premiere features Kaleb and his other fellow Social Studies teacher, Berkan Ciger. These two history teachers discuss how they approach teaching from a people's perspective instead a glossed over textbook perspective. They discuss their views about the "heroification" of figures and how to truly determine the legacy of past presidents. So many students have such a glossy view of presidents because that is what they have always been taught from white washed textbooks. For part one, the two teachers discuss the legacies, both good and bad, of George Washington and Woodrow Wilson.
S4 E7: Biden's Infrastructure Plan
March 29, 2021 • 54 MIN
In this week's episode we discuss President Biden's proposed 3 trillion dollar Infrastructure Plan, which would be the first plan since President Eisenhower created the Highway System in the 1950's.

S4:E6 The Atlanta Mass Shootings and Rise in Anti-Asian Hate
March 26, 2021 • 54 MIN

Real Talk 28 minutes in: This week's real talk centers around the debate over how to tackle crime in communities of color. Does adding more police work or should we tackle the root origin of crime, which is poverty.

Seeing the Bigger Picture: A Federal Job Guarantee
January 4, 2021 • 16 MIN
In part one of this three part series, we will look at how neoliberal policies have only led to the exploitation of the working class. The case being made here isn't a Democrat or Republican argument. These three episodes will provide three policies (federal job guarantee, baby bonds, reparations)  that transcend political parties to raise up those who have been left behind.  In FDR's 1944 State of the Union Address, he observed that "needful men are not free men. Those who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictators are made." FDR saw that full citizenship demanded more than political rights, but required economic rights, most importantly the right to a useful job. More so now than ever before this need for a right to a secure, well paying job is essential. A Federal Job Guarantee is one major policy that not only helps those left behind, but helps transition our economy into a new green century.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inthemoodeforrealhistory/support

We debate whether this watered down bill is better than nothing or should we demand more from our leaders.  Make sure to subscribe and leave us a review about what you think!  #congress #coronabill #stimulus #politics #covid  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inthemoodeforrealhistory/support
S3:E5 Universal Basic Income vs. A Federal Jobs Guarantee
December 14, 2020 • 52 MIN
How would a guaranteed income of $1,000 sound? Or what about a guaranteed job with a living wage and bargaining power? In this episode we debate two options, a universal basic income versus a federal jobs guarantee, that would provide provide relief to millions of struggling Americans. While we are in the middle of not only a pandemic but an economic and financial crisis now more than ever Americans are hurting. By the end of December, 19 million Americans will be evicted in the middle of winter. Millions of Americans are out of work. We both chose our side, now it is up to you to decide which you believe would help us reach a more equitable economy and society.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inthemoodeforrealhistory/support
S3:E4 Is Looting as American as Apple Pie?
December 7, 2020 • 52 MIN
In this week's episode we cover everything your history books didn't tell you about looting. In fact, looting has a long and storied role in our nation's history, just not in the way you picture. Why is the Boston Tea Party celebrated as a patriotic event in history textbooks, but the rioting over the summer viewed as a crime? We call out these hypocrisies and the role that race plays in perceptions of looting.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inthemoodeforrealhistory/support

November 20, 2020 • 13 MIN
Where did idea of race originate? To begin to even try to understand racist thinking we have to go back to the beginning. When we do, we see the entire notion of racism was built on a lie. This lie is not a culmination of attitudes, but rather it is a tool used to maintain the status-quo of protecting pocketbooks and power.There are no sidelines. If I am not fighting to help destroy a system that advantages me, then I am complicit in its’ continuation. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inthemoodeforrealhistory/support
S3:E1 Brain Trust or Bust? Joe Biden's Potential Cabinet
November 16, 2020 • 55 MIN
In our first episode of the 3rd season, we come out of the gate discussing President-Elect (still great to hear) Joe Biden's potential Cabinet picks. While campaigning Biden claimed that his cabinet will not only be the most diverse cabinet in history, but also the most progressive cabinet since FDR's "Brain Trust". Pivotal moments need bold policies. FDR's cabinet gave us the New Deal in the face of the Great Depression. Joe Biden and his cabinet will face the enormous task of an unchecked pandemic and a divided nation. The members he nominates for his cabinet will play a crucial role in determining our path forward.  Make sure to subscribe and let us know how we are doing by leaving a review!

Let's discuss the difference between mythology and history. Let's discuss how our most important heritage is being a mechanism of change not being an obstruction. Before anyone asks, yes I do believe that we should preserve every single monument that has been torn down...but you will have to watch the video to see my twist on it!

11. The People Speak: Henry Turner
May 28, 2020 • 11 MIN
In the second episode of our min-series, The People Speak, I cover a speech by Reconstruction era state legislator, Henry McNeal Turner. Turner was expelled from the Georgia state legislature simply because he was an African-American. Turner asks the question that has yet to be resolved in the 148 years since his expulsion and proves to be equally relevant in light of the injustice that occurred this week in Minneapolis: "Am I a man? If I am such, I claim the rights of a man." --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inthemoodeforrealhistory/support

May 26, 2020 • 10 MIN
This new mini-series will cover excerpts of American voices, some famous and some little known, who celebrate the enduring spirit of dissent. In this first episode we will compare journal entry excerpts of Christopher Columbus and Bartolome De Las Casas to see how the romanticized story of Columbus discovering the "New World" was not as wholesome as previously thought.

8. Democratic-Socialism Pt. 3: The 3 Legged Stool for Justice
May 25, 2020 • 25 MIN
This week we are going to discuss how 3 policies: a federal job guarantee, baby bonds, and reparations, make up the “3 legged stool for justice”. These 3 policies together would establish a firm foundation for racial economic justice across the board in the US. By the end of this episode I will explain this case being made by Democratic-Socialists. That case being instead of the current capitalist system that promotes racial and economic inequality, the US should adopt an economic rights frame administered in a race conscious way. Essentially an economic framework that eradicates barriers that preserve inequalities, exclusionary job market practices that hurt workers of color.

7. Democratic-Socialism Pt. 2: A 3rd Reconstruction
May 25, 2020 • 40 MIN
In this episode we will look at the significant social change that occurred in our country during Reconstruction following the Civil War and the second during the Civil Rights Era. Both of these events were attempts at acknowledging the original sin of our country, racism, and working towards righting that wrong. I will be explaining how American Democratic Socialism calls for a third Reconstruction to finally ensure that African Americans and other people of color will be able to enjoy and depend on the same rights, economic opportunities, and quality resources as any other American.Be sure to like and subscribe to view this and all past episodes! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inthemoodeforrealhistory/support
