J. Edgar Hoover’s 50-Year Career of Blackmail, Entrapment, and Taking Down Communist Spies


It often feels like American culture is more bitterly divided than ever. Discussions abound on whether we’re headed for another Civil War. In today’s episode, we are approaching this topic from an unusual angle, and that is in the person of George Armstrong Custer. Historian and author H.W. Crocker joins us to share his thoughts on the matter.

Crocker is a historian of the Civil War, and he suggests that despite everything that divided Americans back then, they may have still shared the most important values in common, while today we don’t even share that.


Crocker is author of the fiction adventure series, Custer of the West. The series’ latest installment, Armstrong and the Mexican Mystery, just released in September.
