In Historical Controversies, Mises Institute scholar Chris Calton debunks the history you may have learned in government schools.

In the first season, Calton focuses on the history of the war on drugs, busting the myths of state propaganda and exposing the role the US government has played in manufacturing the greatest evils from American's desire to get high.

Customer Reviews

Interesting and Informative

Fantastic podcast. Each episode is loaded with interesting tidbits and facts. Can't wait for more!

One of the best Historical podcast I've listened to!

This is a fascinating podcast series created by a good friend of mine who is a historian and generally one of the most knowledgeable people I've met. He's done great work on the materials and each episode is well thought out. If you love history and love great narrating then give this podcast a try!!

Informative and Entertaining

This series is very entertaining, but also teaches listeners about history that isn't taught in school. The timelines that Calton reveals in this series make clear government overreach and corruption, as well as the origins of current societal norms. This series is fantastic, and is long overdue to educate the public on misrepresented historical events
