Pandemic: Rendering a Hue & Cry Source List

Apologies for the delay, ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, comrades and friends. A lot is going on in the History Impossible offices right now, mostly with conducting interviews and gearing up for a busy 2021, for which you'll all get a concrete update post/podcast in the coming weeks, close to the end of December if all goes as planned.

In the meantime, here is the source list for the most recent (and quite easily the largest) episode of History Impossible, Pandemic: Rendering a Hue & Cry:
