Playing Chicken! Homeschooling the Cuban Missile Crisis!

This special HOMESCHOOLING episode is about PLAYING CHICKEN! James and Sam explore the Unexpected history of PLAYING CHICKEN, which is all Henry VIII’s Great Matter, Appeasement prior to WWII, and the Crusades! Most of all though it’s about THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS OF 1962 which saw a standoff between Khrushchev and Kennedy over stationing of nuclear weapons on the island of Cuba – just 160 kilometres off the coast of Florida!
