The Latin American History Podcast

The Latin American History Podcast aims to tell the story of Spanish and Portuguese America from its very beginnings up until the present day.  

Latin America’s history is home to some of the most exciting and unbelievable stories of adventure and exploration, and this podcast will tell these stories in all their glory. It will examine colonial society, slavery, and what life was like for the region’s inhabitants during this period. We will look at what caused the wars of independence, how they were won, and what Latin America looked like afterwards.

The region’s twentieth century history was marked by extremes – in political ideas, in levels of wealth, and in cultural expression. It was a time of guerrillas, dictators, death squads, powerful corporations, and turmoil. The cold war was played out in extreme here – although filtered through the legacy of colonialism and the region’s own unique heritage.

All this and more make Latin American history a fascinating story, and one worth telling. Join me on this podcast as I set about doing so.
