Skip the classroom and step into a night of American history-telling, live music and multimedia!

Adapted from the top-ranked history podcast, Professor Greg Jackson tells the epic tale of “The Unlikely Union,” weaving defining moments in American history (1754-1865) into a thrilling narrative of the struggle and triumph of a young nation to form, define, and reform itself. Travel back in time through epic storytelling of familiar and unsung real characters from history, and return with real context for today.

Dr. Greg Jackson is best known as the creator and host of the podcast History That Doesn’t’ Suck® which routinely tops the Apple® and Spotify® top history charts, having published over 100 episodes and counting millions of listens. Jackson holds a PhD in history, is a tenured Associate Professor and Senior Fellow in National Security Studies, as well as Fellow of Integrated Studies at Utah Valley University. He is also a frequent commentator in film documentaries including the HISTORY® Channel three-night event Abraham Lincoln, which was Executive Produced by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin and featured former President Barack Obama among other history scholars. HTDS is apolitical with Professor Jackson’s only agenda being to make legit, scholarly researched American history more accessible and educational through entertaining stories.
