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 2 of Episode 3, Navy veteran David Walker continues his conversation with Tory Parker ’16, talking about his job as chief of the USS Maryland engine room and his views on war 75 years later.

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.
