THE HISTORY OF AMERICA’S 1%
A podcast series in which we dive into the long and shadowy history of America’s ruling elite through the works of authors who were either silenced, suppressed, or forgotten, to discover the origins of the 1% and from where their power and wealth was, and still is, extracted. Forget the American history you were taught in school, there is a reason you were never told the information contained in this podcast, and it is very same reason that America is in such troubled times today, and also why nobody can decipher what is wrong.
