What the Historical Heck Is Going On?

A podcast that attempts to unravel baffling, sometimes very public, historical debates, and break them down so you don’t have to.

Produced and hosted by Amy Renee Haines, a PhD student at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

This series came to life with episode 1 as a project for Dr. Honor Sachs’s Early America seminar in the Spring of 2022. Amy, a dedicated Twitter user, confronted with historical imbroglios outside her area of expertise, set out to discover the deeper “why” certain historians were coming to blows on social media. Which led here, to this special series, exploring the ins-and-outs of the fights, the ratios, the take-downs, and the smack-downs, to get to the bottom of What the Historical Heck Is Going On?
