Part 1 of my conversation with guest Dave Brigham about our society's neglect for history. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Interpol, Parquet Courts, The Bohannons and Titus Andronicus.

Show notes:

- Recorded at the BrigHAAAAM Estates

- Dave's doing a reading of one of his short stories on Dec. 11 in Arlington, MA

- Brigham: Working as a volunteer archivist uncovers interesting finds

- Check out Dave's photo blog, The Backside of America

- You can find lots of hidden historical discoveries when you pay attention

- Kumar: Our culture is so focused inward that we forget about history

- Brigham: Finding old collection of dad's military stuff sparked interest in history

- The 2010s are much more of a "Me Decade" than the 1970s

- Dave's got a dumb phone instead of a smart phone

- American Girl dolls focus on historical settings

- History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man

- "Kids these days..."

- The Petraeus scandal: How is it possible to send 30,000 pages of emails?

- Any technological advance tends to get folks distracted: TV, radio, the car

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Interpol - Roland (demo)

Parquet Courts - Light Up Gold

The Bohannons - Goodbye Bill

Titus Andronicus - Ecce Homo
