Road Trip 2020

It's vacation season, and the open road beckons. Rather than give in to that siren song, Alaina is teaching us about several sites meant to separate travelers from their walking around money. It's time for some roadside attractions!

The Benin Bronzes

In this episode Grant teaches us about the Benin Bronzes, thousands of exquisite pieces of art that are not made of bronze, and not in Benin. And to talk about this specific crime of colonialism, we have to talk about the empire it came from, and the shifting dynamic between Europe and the world as capitalism and white supremacy developed side-by-side.

Deaf Education

We have returned! After a brief hiatus, History Honeys is back. This week, Alaina is teaching us about the history of deaf education, and the development of contemporary sign languages. How are sign languages linguistically dynamic and unique? Why are divisions in US deaf culture generational? How are contentious claims laundered as the default, even at the cost of future harm?

Sudden changes in society are reflected in the daily lives of people. This week, Alaina demonstrates that with a selection of stories about the things people wore in the US and UK during the Second World War. Rationing, shifting wworkplace demographics, and new materials all had an immediate effect on what people wore. And, looking at what people wore can reveal stories of bigotry.

ACT UP

In the 1980s America's health infrastructure failed to adequately respond to an epidemic, which showed in greater contrast failures across society. This week, Grant is teaching us about one group's commitment to correct that failure through civil disobedience. By prioritizing disruption over image, and relentlessly claiming the moral high ground, AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power drastically improved the lives of people living with HIV and reduced its spread.

Two months ago was a different time. That's when we put out a bonus episode about the fun we were planning to have in a Disney World vacation. In this episode, we're looking back at the reality we experienced. We talk about the many highs, the few lows, and the constant battle against exhaustion. Time will tell when, and even if, the parks can be experienced again the way they were. But for now, please enjoy this walk through recent, happy memories.

The Hays Code

Ninety years ago today, the code of standards known as the Hays Code was put into effect, shaping the form and content off all mainstream film for decades to come. In this episode, Alaina teaches us where it came from, what purpose it served, and how it fell out of use. Is self-regulation a matter of morality or profit? Does power lie in the rules or their enforcer? Did people in the 1940s actually share beds?

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Grant is celebrating by looking back at sainthood itself. The western church has been honoring holy figures since its earliest days, a practice that developed into a relatively new bureaucratic system.

Two Objects

From it's foundation, this is a show about the two of us sharing things we find interesting with you and with each other. In that spirit, Alaina is spending this episode talking about two things we all get our hands on without giving a second thought. Facial tissue is the end result of a new material developed for the war effort, and shopping carts are the result of innovation in the way we source our food. What parallels can be found between them?
