Intro: Today’s special episode is an interview with Jesse Alexander and Catherine Pfauth on an upcoming project they are involved in called Glory and Defeat.
Cathérine is a research assistant at the Ludwigsburg University of Education. Jesse is a historian, educator and higher education professional based in Vienna, Austria. He holds a BA in History from the University of Ottawa and an MA in Modern History from the University of Vienna.
The two are part of a team working on Glory and Defeat, a new documentary series about the prequel to WW1, from the team behind The Great War YouTube Channel. The Franco-Prussian War was a pivotal war in modern European history. It was the last great power war in Europe before World War I. It led to the fall of the French Second Empire and the rise of the first German Empire. Glory and Defeat will retell this crucial period in history in real time.
Quick note, when I conducted the interview I guess Zencastr defaulted to my camera mic, rather than my professional mic, so apologies for the lower than usual quality; thankfully my guests do most of the talking. Please enjoy.
