What should have been yesterday’s podcast is going up in the wee hours of today. Technically this fits, as the Stalybridge riot was at its peak on the 20th of March, but I chose the initiation date of March 19th for the podcast commemoration.
This week, I’m discussing the Cotton Famine and its impact on British politics. As the descendant of working-class Brits, I found this Civil War connection particularly interesting.
