Podcasts to Celebrate U.S. Independence Day

podcasts for independence day

Guest post from Michael Troy, Host of the American Revolution Podcast

On Independence Day, we remember those who struggled to turn the British colonies of North America into the United States.  The movement not only challenged British control of a continent, but began a movement that pushed much of the world from monarchy to democracy.  In 1775, after years of political petitions and protests, the colonists took up arms against what they saw as British tyranny.  A year later, they declared themselves to be free and independent states.  It took eight years of war to make that declaration a reality, and then more years to develop a federal government that would serve a nation of the people, by the people, and for the people.

These podcasts cover the people and events that gave rise to the American Revolution. Enjoy these podcasts for Independence Day and delve further into the history as you celebrate!

  1. “Dispatches” is absolutely amazing, can definitely recommend!
    Yale’s course on Revolution was pretty good too, but I’ve missed like half of it ’cause listening during driving… Gotta revisit it at one point!

  2. Key battles was really fun to listen to, kudos to the production! Love every minute of it!
