Welcome to Cutting Edge History, I am Mike Sandstrom and I will be your host and blogger. I developed Cutting Edge History to look into the key questions from the past that pique my interest or the audience’s. I will read the literature, interview scholars, and present my findings in a convenient and unconventional style. As you listen, you can imagine me performing a similar function as an Armchair Quarterback, without throwing any beer cans at the TV. I hope that you will join me, Mike Sandstrom, on this weekly podcast and blog, as I keep you on the Cutting Edge of History.
