#158 – Guns Germs and Steel

Guns Germs and Steel, what is all the fuss! If you were under a rock Crash Course started then stopped a new series on human Geography in which it was heavily implied that Jared Diamond’s magnum opus had racist undertones. Bear in mind we recorded this episode in 2016 so sorry it is a little out of date, but now that the dust has cleared no one can accuse us of trying to feed off youtube drama. By no means a great theory or even exciting book Guns Germs and Steel is still influential and the worse thing you could say about it is that it starts a conversation.
