The turn of the 20th century (1870s -1914) was a ticking time bomb that launched our modern era. Scientists, writers, revolutionaries and terrorists risked their lives to change the world. Each episode we sit down with a historical expert to discuss a topic from this remarkable time period. Our guests draw parallels to the present day and help us understand the roots of current events.
