It's the 100th anniversary of World War I: experience it in real time with "The First World War in 261 weeks," a podcast that recounts the events of the war, week by week, 100 years from when they occurred. The podcast will run, as the war did, for five years. Find it on iTunes, Podbean, and Stitcher. [via Metafilter]
I wonder if it will have a "history is written by the winners, bitch" slant. I mean, don't get me wrong, the Germans in WWII were awful and in WWI were imperialistic land grabbing jerks, but everyone was back then and many of the allies were as well. There were no "good guys" in WWI.
