  1. I have always loved your podcast. Just something to consider, review TV series as part of HIT. There are many out there. The Last Kingdom, which I thought was horrible. Also, Whitehall. One I just finished is Serpent Queen. I would like to you your thoughts on these. Again, there are so many to review.

  2. David,
    A small but important quibble. Your map of Native American People has some errors.
    The Tuscarora live in Eastern Carolinas prior to the arrival of Europeans. However, by the start of the 18th century, they had migrated north to Pennsylvania and New York and joined the Iroqui nation, becoming the sixth tribe and closely associated with the Oneida. Either way, the Powhatans were centered in the region of Virginia including the watershed of the Rappahannock River to the (future) James River.

  3. I confess I got behind in your podcast, David, as I stopped commuting during covid and no longer needed (desperately) your podcasts to keep me calm and civilized as I drove through the hellhole of self-centeredness also know as Houston rush hour traffic. I am skipping all over the place instead of plodding through the in order, and my engineering sense of order previously dictated. I grew up in Indianapolis and went through a push for Indiana history in grade school (1st-6th grade, 1967-1973), which was actually very balanced between the existing natives and the Europeans migrating towards Indiana and further west. It was mostly the Miami tribe that inhabited what became central and northern Indiana, where I grew up. My father passed down the book “The Bears of Blue River,” which was a great book about the adventures of a 13 year old boy named Balser, written by Charles Major, who I recently discovered was a fanatic on English history, just like me. But I digress… 🙂
