Episode 1: Technology. Technology Never Changes.
Fallout 4 has lead us to a few questions: why has so little seemingly changed after 200 years? What would culture be like in the Vaults?
Episode 2: Chocolate Covered Broccoli
We return to the topic of gaming in the classroom, discuss Robert’s use of Minecraft in recreating Denver, and talk about using alternative mediums for students to approach the past.
Episode 3: A Mature Hope
We get together this week to talk about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. How does it stack up to our expectations? How does it do with world building? Is there too much reliance on nostalgia?

Episode 4: Geschichtwissenschlopff
This week, we tackle Amazon’s Man in the High Castle and discuss alternative history as a way of understanding the past.
