LOSERS KEEP ON LOSING!

In this BONUS episode, the Histories of the Unexpected duo, James and Sam, continue their rampage through the past on their question to uncover the unexpected history of LOSERS!  Which is all about The Wall Street Crash and the Great Depression, the American Dream, rugged individualism, and the concept of being unsuccessful (bankrupts, defeats, third-raters, good-for-nothings, flunkies, wastes-of-space, old bogies, loafers, has-been, failures and no-hopers), credit ratings, statues, commemoration, Black Lives Matter, Confederates and White Supremacy, and Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman; it’s also all about WW2, oral history and radical history, hidden voices, and history from below.
