Listen as Brian & Lyman begin a six-part series on the history of enslaved migration in the United States. Today, we discuss the shift in forced labor from indentured servitude to the trans-Atlantic system of chattel slavery that would divide America for many years to come.
In this week's episode, Brian & Lyman reflect on the prior two episodes' exploration of early trans-Appalachian migration in America. Listen as they identify the key themes of this period and discuss how times may not have changed that much.
Picking up where the previous episode left off, Brian & Lyman continue the story of how early migration in the United States led to the invention of bourbon whiskey. Listen in for stories of popular revolt, some of the many origin stories of bourbon, and even a secret agent tale.
