  1. Do also listen to the BBC radio specials. They have some pretty great stuff. If you want to listen to new british pop before it hits the states or if you just want to listen to a biography of Doris Day. Not that that would interest you much, but there are pretty good history specials too. Did you know that I used to be a history education major before a Human Relations major? Huh, I’ve wanted to be a lot of things.

  2. Yeah
    I was a history education major at one point as well. The bbc is great, and they have a cool history magazine as well.
