The Philippines, the Hollywood Years



I posted Episode 31 late on Monday; sorry I didn’t announce it here sooner.  With this podcast episode, we begin a narrative completely in the twentieth century, so welcome to recent history!  Here we also conclude the four-part miniseries about the Philippines.  This time we cover the years from 1902 to 1941, looking at the minor wars that came after the Philippine Insurrection (or Philippine-American War, if you’re politically correct), and seeing how Americans and Filipinos learned to work together, so that the Philippines can become independent someday.

The American War in the Philippines



This is the third episode in the mini-series that the podcast is currently doing about the Philippines.  Here we cover the three-year war the Americans fought to keep the islands after they arrived in 1898.  This also completes our narrative on Southeast Asia in the nineteenth century.
