My Favorite Podcast of the Moment


One of my favorite professors from college was a guy named Richard Slotkin.  (Despite my affection for him, he gave me the worst grade I ever received -- but that's a story for another time.)  Slotkin's speciality was the American West.   I took a number of classes with him, the best of which was a film class that focused on Westerns set in Mexico.   Slotkin recently retired.  In his honor, Wesleyan has posted a number of his lectures on line. I recommend them highly for both film buffs and history buffs.  Here's a link.  They can also be found on iTunes.
