Welcome to a very special edition of the Ring of Fire Podcast this week, I am your host Sam Seder. That’s right folks, we are breaking away from our normal radio format this week to bring you an uninterrupted show that we hope you’ll enjoy.

Joining us this week, Historian, Author, and Media Critic, Eric Alterman, will join me to discuss why history majors have declined in our university system, more than any other degree and why that is contributing to the decline historical thinking.

And Michael Spies from The Trace, will join us to discuss his blockbuster piece explaining why turmoil at The National Rifle Association is coming from within.
