If you're new here, you might not be familiar with Indy Neidell and his other work. Not only are we doing 'Between Two Wars', on the events and years leading up to World War Two (of which this video is a part), also we're covering World War Two in realtime week-by-week, exactly 79 years after it all happened. We have now entered the second year of the war. If you haven't already, check out the World War Two Channel for what maybe one day will become the most complete account of The Second World War:


STAY CIVIL AND POLITE we will delete any comments with personal insults, or attacks.
AVOID PARTISAN POLITICS AS FAR AS YOU CAN we reserve the right to cut off vitriolic debates.
HATE SPEECH IN ANY DIRECTION will lead to a ban.
RACISM, XENOPHOBIA, OR SLAMMING OF MINORITIES will lead to an immediate ban.

OK - that guitar segment was unexpected, wholly welcomed, and amazingly relevant to our times.
Awesome, Indy. <3

If only Tannu Tuva could have ruled over the US. They could easily have stopped the Great Depression by their force of will alone.

Economics student here. I just wanted to tell you how well this episode was made from an economic point of view with all three main camps mentioned, but then I remembered what channel I am looking at. You guys can make even controversial topics (like the Great Depression) unbiased and very informative. Thank you!

Not gonna lie, i thought Indy was about to say "Remember the wise words of Pythagoras: a^2+b^2=c^2"

America's economy is so good that they can throw their economy at the economy to fix the economy

Put 4 economists in a room and give them a question. You'll get 5 different answers.

He just pulled out a guitar and started singing. What a power move.

Awesome coverage of the Bonus Army. Many people in the USA today will say, "if things get bad the army would never turn on the people."

I was at a CCC hot spring this fall. It was great.

İndy Neidell could talk about paint drying and I'd listen for hours on end.

Indy is like that favourite school teacher you had that knew and could do everything.

I think the best thing FDR did was communicating directly to the normal citizens about his policies. Something like this creates trust and even if you do not agree with a certain policy you are more likely to support him. People now feel that he cares about helping them. I really respect that

Well, I never thought I'd be serenaded watching Time Ghost History!
