It’s been really interesting to find these old recordings. For this episode, I found Kennedy’s famous 1963 speech in West Berlin. I keep being struck with what an amazing orator Kennedy was. It is quite the captivating and amazing speech.
Reagan’s speech to West Berlin in 1987 is also in this episode. It’s three times longer than Kennedy’s, and probably less inspirational, but still an interesting listen.
Next week I’m going to have one of the forgotten opposition speeches, trying to argue against Reagan. Also some good material out there from that perspective.
In other news, ourmedia.org is being terribly annoying. It’s much easier to upload to archive.org directly. I don’t know why I ever bothered with ourmedia.org (or why anyone does, really).
