#6 History Hack: Blitz Spirit

We keep hearing about the need to embrace it in the face of Covid-19, but what is "Blitz Spirit?" Did it even exist? Historian and Consultant Joshua Levine joins us to talk about his hit book The Secret History of the Blitz. Learn about the parallels between 1940 and now; we ask how badly did people behave, and were the authorities prepared? Hear about the dark side of this fabled period of British history,  why Sooty the bear was disturbing, and why garden centres near Josh need to up their security.
