49 - The Harsh Light of Day
We’re closing in on the end of the story of the Italian unification. Through both force of arms and cunning, Piedmont has conquered almost all of Italy - from the perspective of grand, heroic history, we’ve already passed the climax and we’re just tying up loose ends. But that’s not how I feel about it - because we’re about to leave the heady days of high hopes and dreams for the future into the murky realm of mistakes, and of what might have been.

Delighted to see you're back. Have been hoping to get to the ending of this fascinating epic. As a Napoleon fan, I wanted to learn more about what happened to Italy after he'd had his wicked way with her!

I like history. I like this podcast. It helps me learn about the period in Italian history which led to "independence". But you guys seem smart, shouldn't you be looking at things on a more fundamental level. The position, not the status, of women in society. Especially outside the western world, though things are not great there.

You guys are amazing!!! What an informative, thorough presentation. I drove across the USA this summer, about 7,000 miles, my wife our our five kids are all addicted to your podcast on Italian unification. Please keep going!! I would live to hear the reasons for the massive immigration to America in the late 19th century.
