Josiah is joined by his first return guest, Chris Barker, to discuss the revolutions of 1848. While the string of revolutions that rocked Europe over the year were ultimately a failure, their legacy lived on and shaped the way modern politics developed. This is the year nationalism became a real political force. This is the year Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto. The ripple effects from this event would stretch everywhere and the conversation goes all over the place because of that, from abolitionists in the U.S. to the Hungarian revolt against the soviets in 1956. Beyond that though, this is mostly an episode of two history nerds getting excited about history.
Here's the episode of Mammonburg with Keanu Heydari we mention a few times.
Today's guest is no longer on any social media, but he hangs out in the Mammonburg discord a lot.
