History has experienced something of a popular resurgence in the last couple of decades, especially World War II history. I credit HBO’s “Band of Brothers” and the 1998 should-have-been-Best-Picture “Saving Private Ryan” for helping to make that happen. One of the greatest things about the World Wide Web is the fact that one can connect with like-minded people with just a few clicks of a mouse. There are a lot of people who love to learn about history, ranging from well-known areas such as World War II to more “niche” topics. So for all the history lovers out there, here are three history podcasts you should be downloading. They basically are all ear candy for the aspiring history buffs. Stuff You Missed in History Class This is a great listen. The hosts, Tracy Wilson and Holly Frey, explore some of history’s lesser-known incidents. Recent episode topics include Aphra Behn, a spy and the first woman known to make a living as a writer; the New London School explosion; and Jamaica’s Maroon Wars. A great thing about this podcast is that when the information is not 100-percent verifiable, the hosts tell you that.

MULVANE — Mulvane student and Phi Theta Kappa Beta Phi Upsilon chapter vice president Amira Lamb has announced her decision to represent Cowley College and run for the office of International President of Phi Theta Kappa. Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the international society of two-year colleges, elects five new international officers at its annual convention. Chapter voting delegates will vote on the five positions: International President; Division I Vice President; Division II Vice President; Division III Vice President; Division IV Vice President. International officers of Phi Theta Kappa preside over the annual convention and honors institute. They also deliver speeches at regional meetings, hold seminars and workshops, and work to advance the mission of Phi Theta Kappa through collaboration with its international headquarters in Jackson, Mississippi. All Phi Theta Kappa members are eligible to run if they are in good standing with their chapter and are enrolled exclusively in an associate degree program at a community college. Lamb is a first-year pre-medical student at Cowley College-Mulvane, after deciding her original pursuit of nursing would not allow her to serve those she wanted to assist in the capacity desired. She is a very active member in the Beta Phi Upsilon (BPU) chapter, serving as the chartering vice president of leadership and heading up BPU’s efforts to assist with the Sumner County campus half-cent sales tax. Lamb also has begun a...Read More
