"Remember the Maine" -- In this week's episode Dr. Arlene Diaz joins Mike Spencer, Austin to discuss the start of the Spanish-Cuban-American War.  As tensions build in Cuba, American imperialists order the USS Maine into Havana Harbor.  In February of 1898, the ship exploded and a sensationalist media industry of the Gilded Age used it to break in the war, focusing public opinion around the perception that the Spanish were responsible.  But were they?  Follow us on Twitter and support us on Patreon.
