Podcasts of Interest: “Doing History” on the Revolutionary Economy

The Doing History podcast, edited by Liz Covart and recently brought under the auspices of the Omohundro Institute for Early American History and Culture (OIEAHC), has been producing high-quality material for several years now. Recent episodes have been focusing on the American Revolution, and the last three topics may be of particular interest to economic and business historians working in the colonial America field:
  • The Revolutionary Economy, featuring Serena Zabin of Carleton College, author of Dangerous Economies: Status and Commerce in Imperial New York (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2009)
  • The Politics of Tea, featuring Jane Merritt of Old Dominion University, author of The Trouble with Tea: The Politics of Consumption in the Eighteenth-Century Global Economy (Johns Hopkins University Press)
  • Smuggling and the American Revolution, with guests including Wim Klooster, Fabricio Prado, and Christian Koot
In addition to links provided with each episode, additional materials are available through the OI Reader, available in both Apple and Android versions.
