More on: American founding myths

The podcast episodes examine how the myths and narratives surrounding the founding of America, particularly the American Revolution and the role of slavery, are examples of American exceptionalism and innocence narratives.

These myths serve to shape the country's self-identity and worldview, often obscuring the realities of settler colonialism, white supremacy, and counter-revolutionary endeavors that were central to the American founding.

The episodes challenge these celebratory myths and situate the American founding within a broader context of imperialism, capitalism, and the suppression of counter-histories.
