How to Hide an Empire tells the story of the United States outside the United States – from nineteenth-century conquests like Alaska, Hawai‘i, the Philippines and Puerto Rico, to the catalogue of islands, archipelagos and military bases dotted around the globe over which the Stars and Stripes flies. Many are thousands of miles from the mainland; all are central to its history. Roifield talks to author Daniel Immerwahr
We also hear from listeners about their stories of Christmas travel and here the story of Santa, from Turkish saint to commercial juggernaut.
