We do this in weekly conversations with eminent scholars and historians who explain and analyze the history behind current events. We call this peeling the history behind news.
Hey there Newspeeler, this is Adel, your host at HbN. I started HbN to provide a better understanding of news through history. And I am committed to making history that is researched and written by scholars accessible and enjoyable to everyone. Why is this important? Because American news woefully lacks context.
Before podcasting, I practiced patent law and later jumped deep into entrepreneurship and founded a startup based on my patented medical inventions.
I am privileged to host HbN. Preparing for conversations with scholars and producing this program is exhilarating. Each podcast episode challenges my intellectual capacity and stretches my imagination to new boundaries.
With more than 120 episodes, HbN is now in its 3rd season with new episodes every Friday at 6am U.S. Eastern Time.
I hope enjoy our program. Welcome to the Newspeeler community.
