Would you believe, this week it’s our SECOND episode about the Peterloo Massacre of 1819. Some people would probably have stopped at one. To tell you the truth, most people would probably have stopped at zero. But not us. Your courageous podcasters are back this week with our reviews of the film that recently hit screens in various niche locations across the country. In this episode, you’ll learn: • Why the director’s emphasis on personality was probably realistic • Why having the average citizen conversing about the big issues of the day was plausible • How the film delivered a masterstroke – an emotional killer blow at the end Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/footnotesofhistory/message
