Not At Odds #2 – What Historians Get Wrong About Faccuracy!

NaO_banner

 

On this week’s episode of NOT AT ODDS, Jandy and I go into the issue of historical accuracy in film and whether or not that’s a big deal. We coin a new term – FACCURACY – and admit to not having seen Selma. Lotta good truth here. Well, mostly truth. Actually, a few things were added for drama, but the moment was truthy…

Oh you get the idea. Listen to our new episode and tell us what you think!

Considering my background in history and historiography, I’m going to have to give this a good listen.

I’m sure you’re much more knowledgable on the history side of things than we are, Jonathan! All I have to go on is an undergrad minor and enthusiasm.
