The New Deal was a sweeping suite of programs and policies to combat the Great Depression of the 1930s. Several of those programs provided for artists in exchange for their labor producing new art. What kind of art sprouted from this system? How did society benefit from a boom in freely available art and performance? Why hasn't this level of investment continued?

About fifty episodes ago Grant made an offhand comment about one of that topic's figures. Now, it's a full episode. Do not test him. The Pullman strike lasted for months, threatened all American commerce, and set precedents that have lasted over a century regarding government involvement in labor disputes. It all started because George Pullman's perfect town didn't consider the lives of the people in it.

The mid-19th century in America was a time of new popular philosophies about the order of the universe and the individual's place in it. One example is the dawn of Spiritualism: the belief that the spirits of the dead can be contacted, and that they have answers to our urgent questions. In this episode, Grant teaches us about two cases: the prototypical founders of movement, and one of its most bizarre figures. Once a popular movement starts, does it ever really end? How much faith should be put in a prophet that makes a profit? What purpose does debunking serve?

We're sure the world is about to be bombarded by retrospectives of Apollo 11, and for good reason, but there's so much more to explore. Grant takes us through the history of Mars exploration, from the first looks from afar, to the first mobile science platforms to rove its surface.

In this episode, Grant tells a familiar story from a less-popular angle. Venezuelan oil interests, for-profit media, and a right-wing coalition launched a coup against the early years of Hugo Chavez' presidency. It also had all the hallmarks of 21st Century American Imperialism, but with a veneer of deniability. Who planted the seeds of today's unrest? How can you see true intent through rhetoric? Why hasn't Elliott Abrams been tried for war crimes?

Two Playwrights

Grant wants us to get some culture, so he shines a light on the roots of theater in the West. Hrotsvitha was inspired to use the language of a playwright who lived a millennium before her to impart moral lessons to those who followed her. Hildegard of Bingen steered liturgical drama toward a form much more recognizable as theater, and invented a genre that would become dominant hundreds of years later.

The early 1990s gave rise to many fads, trends, and subcultures. Riot Grrrl has been dismissed as just another of them, but had far greater ambitions and achieved far greater things. Motivation, inspiration, and cooperation led a group of activists to change the conversation, until the structures they railed against stepped in to change it back. What's the difference between having a message and controlling the narrative? Can the information we're giving you, filtered through the years, be trusted to make an accurate picture of an underground scene that was unfairly covered in the media? How can digital spaces replicate the conditions that fostered Riot Grrrl?

Brazil's 20th century was turbulent. The rules of government were rewritten often, and coups seized and transferred power regularly. Grant talks about a 20-year period where the military ruled directly, through hand-picked presidents taken from their own top ranks. How can you define "democracy" to defend the suspension of representative government? What responsibility does the United States have to deal with the aftermath of Cold War policy? Why do we keep going back to ideas that were a disaster the first time?
