Episode 1: The Americas Before Columbus

Covering the Americas prior to Columbus, we destroy some myths about native American peoples, including how they arrived and the size of native American population.


Some of the resources used to create this episode:

  1. Charles Mann, 1491. 
  2. Stuart J. Fiedel, “The Peopling of the New World: Present Evidence, New Theories, and Future Directions”  in Journal of Archeological Research, Vol. 8, No. 1, 2000. 
  3. Robert Remini, A Short History of the United States.
