History Slam

The Bank War

I recently got back from a bit of a road trip, and while I was gone we published a new episode of the History Slam podcast over at Activehistory.ca. In this episodeI talk with Paul Kahan about his book The Bank War: Andrew Jackson, Nicolas Biddle, and the Fight for American Finance. We talk about the challenges of writing popular history, the history of America’s financial structure, and the role of personalities in early American history. You can find the full post here.
