A new series of the Centre Point podcast features oral histories collected by Centre College students who took the course “America in the World Wars” with Assistant Professor of History Sara Egge.

In Part 1 of Episode 3, veteran David Walker talks with Tory Parker ’16 about his growing-up years in Michigan, his memories of joining the Navy and what he remembers of being in the engine room of the USS Maryland (above) when Pearl Harbor was attacked on Dec. 7, 1941.

The Centre Point podcast began with a pre-2016 presidential election series that featured Centre professors discussing politics through the lenses of other topics, including the theatricality of politics, the importance of polling and the role of religion in politics. A post-2016 presidential election Centre Point series also featured Centre professors looking at what lies ahead in American politics, including the future of democracy and a British perspective on American politics.
