Foundational world history for the adults who forgot.
Did you forget everything from your world history class, and now feel lost when world topics come up in current events? Designed for busy people who forgot and need a quick refresh, Wiser World takes world history and makes it approachable and concise.
Here we explore different regions of the world, giving you the facts and context you need to think historically when considering current events. The goal? Re-build your foundation of world knowledge so you can be a more informed, and confident critical thinker when it comes to foreign affairs.
MEET THE HOST
I’m Alli, a former World History teacher and lifelong learner of all things world.
When I taught freshman World History and Geography, I quickly realized most adults had forgotten the material I was teaching the students. In our busy, specialized lives, it’s not hard for this to happen! However, in our globalized society, I think it’s more important than ever for us to have a sound global education — myself included. I have designed this podcast for people who want to know more about the world, and want to multitask while doing it.
WHAT TO EXPECT
About This Podcast
When we study and understand history, it acts as a foundation for processing current events. It gives us more maturity and wisdom as we consider events, conflicts, policies, and political and culture revolutions happening right now. History should be critical in helping us form opinions.
History overwhelms many because they feel they have to swallow the whole elephant at once! But what if we listened to 30-minute episodes every week, gaining knowledge little by little? That’s the goal of this podcast: make it manageable and approachable.
