Announcing a new podcast, Consolation Prize

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University is pleased to announce Season 1 of a new podcast, Consolation Prize, about consuls and their world. This narrative podcast will investigate American consuls in the nineteenth century. There will be mayhem! romance! intrigue! exotic animals! and much more, when we explore how consuls interacted with Americans who traveled the world. We'll also tackle questions of identity, race, diplomacy, and politics, as we situate these consuls in their larger context.
