Anne is a Man in the weekend of March 13

Here is a list of reviews I am planning to publish over the weekend (Friday - Sunday).

-On a recent issue of UChannel Podcast I heard a lecture by former CIA head Michael Scheuer who sharply criticizes US foreign policy of interventionism.

-The Dutch history podcast Hoor! Geschiedenis had two issues analyzing the Dutch National Anthem in the context of the Dutch Revolt against Phillips II of Spain. This triggered a couple of thoughts about the meanings attributed to the leader of the revolt William of Orange. (review will be in Dutch)

-On EconTalk, Russ Roberts spoke with Jimmy Wales the founder of Wikipedia about the history of Wikipedia.

-BBC's In Our Time, today, had an episode about the Library at Alexandria.

-On the newly discovered history podcast New Books in History, Marshall Poe interview Gregory Cochran and spoke about human evolution also in the last 60,000 years.

If I am not going to manage to write about In Our Time, I will probably write about other UChannel Podcasts in stead, for example one about the Sudan. Otherwise the Sudan review will be after the weekend.
