Snippet of Stuff You Missed In History Class: The Best Mardi Gras Ever Learn about the history of Mardi Gras in America! Here is a great history kick-off to the upcoming holiday.
Snippet of the Stuff You Missed in History Class Podcast: Creation of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer Most of us grew up with the story of the sweet little reindeer that was picked on by his peers, and becomes the hero who saves Christmas. But Rudolph is unique in that he became part of Christmas tradition almost the moment he was introduced in 1939.
Snippet of Stuff You Missed In History Class Much like it will be this time around, in 1979, New Orleans residents had the city all to themselves for their holiday. Because of a police strike, parades were (attempted to be) cancelled and tourists were even turned away. This episode was recorded in 2011, and many still consider the 1979 celebration The Best Mardi Gras Ever, and perhaps it will look similar to what it will be this year.
Snippet of Stuff You Missed in History Class: Julio Tello, Peru's Archaeological Trail Blazer Holly and Tracy chat about the early days of Julio Tello's career, including what inspired him to study anthropology and archaeology.
