Well, it’s finally time to announce my new podcast, Sound of History!
The Sound of History is a weekly podcast featuring full-length, unedited, and uncut historic audio. You’ll hear speeches, broadcasts, and events from around the world. Sometimes you’ll hear famous people, sometimes not.
Episode 1 is up now. On this episode, you’ll find John F. Kennedy cracking jokes about Marx in front of a bunch of newspaper publishers, Ronald Reagan talking about the Challenger, some blues from 1922, and an Edison recording from 1902.
Thanks to Cliff for mentioning that Reagan speech in a comment. That prompted me to go find it.
I’m finding material for this podcast from around the Internet. Some of that music comes from archive.org, and there are various sources for presidential speeches.
I’d like to find some British prime minister’s speeches as well, but I’m having difficulty with that. If any of you Brits reading this know of a good site for uncut audio, accessible to Americans, please do let me know.
