We talk about Vichy France, Jazz music and the Hull note, items left out of the Visions of a Fever cast on 1941, and develop these topics more. FDR’s cooperation with Vichy is considered a clear mistake by many historians today. Also a look at Hull Note, that is, US Secretary of State Cordell Hull’s note to Japan which could be seen as a ‘my way or highway’ and the Japanese felt was an ultimatum.
Also an intro to what Bruce is working on – the Soviet Magnitofon podcast. In the works since 2010 in one form, mostly in a notebook. It is a podcast on the fall of the Soviet Union and the later period of the Soviet Union from 1975 to 1991. it’s in the works, but I read a preview.
