Ep. #6: Phonebank Frenzy / "Lies My Teacher Told Me"
Show Notes

We start today's episode with a caller to our RAGE line, which kicks off a conversation about the highs and lows of phonebanking and what we're doing to flip Texas blue in November.

The majority of our show this week is dedicated to our OTW book club selection, Lies My Teacher Told Me by James Loewen. We talk about the book, how we teach history in America, and why it matters. The NPR piece on Trump's ridiculous and ahistorical 'Patriotic Education' plan is here.

As always, we want to hear from you. Call our RAGE line at (702) 907-RAGE and let us know what you're thinking about this week. Other ways to reach us: shoot us an email at [email protected] or find us on Twitter and IG @OhThisWorldPod.

We'll be back next week with an interview with the Democratic candidate for Texas State Board of Education, District 5, Rebecca Bell-Metereau

Thanks for listening, y'all!
