Dixie's Memorials

Note: we recorded this episode together in person, and Elizabeth's mic picked up a lot echo. We think it's a great episode, so we wanted to share the content with you. But the sound quality doesn't meet our typical standards. It'll be back to normal next time!

In this episode we focus on Confederate memorials.

Elizabeth talks southern white women and the beginnings of the Lost Cause myth, and Andy tackles the exclusionary rhetoric of Confederate memorials. We end by discussing Silent Sam, the controversial Confederate memorial that remains on the UNC Chapel Hill campus, still facing north.

Zombie Roy Moore shows up, Elizabeth talks about her March sadness, and Andy gives you some Netflix rec's.
