In the new season of The Audit, Dave and Josh take a big leap into the astounding world of PragerU, a right-wing propaganda machine that aspires to become a force in American education. This first episode, which delves into PragerU’s approach to world history and foreign affairs, features guest Daniel Bessner, an associate professor of International Studies at the University of Washington and co-host of the American Prestige podcast. The three discuss PragerU’s revisionist understanding of topics like the British Empire, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War, as well as the importance of education and expertise in shaping our understanding of history and the world around us.
