Today’s podcast is another book report. “Lies My Teacher Told Me” by James W. Loewen is an eye-opening study of 12 high school history textbooks and how they effectively destroy any curiosity of history in the minds of their students. They do this through such techniques as information overload, authoritative tone, heroification and lies of omission, just to name a few. Today’s podcast covers just a couple of examples of how history is distorted to elicit favorable perceptions of certain historical figures and events.
