Episode 100: The Philippines, A Dictatorship Made For Two

November 01, 2020

Turn your clock back an hour (if you are in a place that does that), and tune in to the podcast! After four years and four months, here is the podcast's 100th episode! Today we go to the Philippines, to look at those islands from 1957 to 1981, a period that includes the first part of the Marcos dictatorship. And then listen in to hear how I will celebrate, because completing 100 episodes is a big deal for any podcast.

The Marcos team.

Imelda and Ferdinand Marcos.

Philippine newspaper.

And here is a 1972 newspaper, announcing the declaration of martial law.
