Hello again ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, comrades, friends.
In the spaces of time that fill up between episodes of History Impossible, I do a lot of reading. Much of the time, it's work on the next episode (or even episodes) since I have a pretty fast-paced schedule to keep. But other times, it's just about stuff I find interesting, especially related to history. And sometimes I want to let people know this interesting fact/idea I just discovered, but I just don't have the time to devote to doing extensive research and writing, recording, and editing together a long-form podcast about it.
So that's why I'm going to try something new with this blog, since I don't want it to just be random announcements and source lists. I want to try and keep things active on the History Impossible site. This is why I'm going to post another story that interests me later this afternoon. If you find it interesting, but are only here because you just want the newest episode of History Impossible, great! No hard feelings. But if you're interested and want me to cover the subject more in depth later, perhaps in a dedicated episode, please let me know here in the comments. Or even simpler, just give the post a "like". That will send the message effectively enough on its own!
Looking forward to the feedback!
