In the November 24 episode, I sit down for a frank conversation about Reconstruction with a historian, my friend Dr. Meredith May. With the insurrection from January still making news as various participants face trials, and with Thanksgiving upon us with its complicated history, this is a timely conversation. How, after all, can we make sense of the present or the future without looking first to the past to try and better understand it.
