John is a multi-award-winning documentary cameraman, director and stills photographer and has brought joy to many with his work on Dynasties, Frozen Plant and Africa to name a few. Listen in to the show as John talks about the exciting and challenging places in the world that he has been lucky enough to work; as well as working with and learning from television royalty throughout his career. John is such an affable character, often shying away from the limelight behind the camera, so it was great to hear about his journey, listen to his stories and learn from some of the great knowledge he has to pay forward for future generations.

Uncommon History of the South Podcast
John Brown's Raid on Harpers Ferry and a Kentucky Gun Maker John Brown was an American abolitionist. Brown, who said that speeches, sermons, and petitions were accomplishing nothing, that "moral suasion is hopeless", saw violence as unfortunately necessary if slavery in the United States were to be eliminated. Benjamin Mills was a well known gun maker that spent most of his career building rifles in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. After the Civil War he moved his business from Harrodsburg to Lexington, Kentucky and continued to build rifles, shotguns, and pistols. The Good Lord Bird Ethan Hawke stars as abolitionist John Brown in a humorous, dramatic and historical tapestry of Antebellum America.

John Brown, Abraham Lincoln & The Fight To End Slavery
Historian H.W. Brands' new book, 'The Zealot and the Emancipator' looks at two very different 19th century leaders, John Brown and Abraham Lincoln. Brown was a militant abolitionist who embraced violence and was hanged after he tried to spark an insurrection at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. President Lincoln resisted conflict as long as possible, hoping laws and reason would keep Southern states in the Union, and eventually bring an end to human bondage. Also, film critic Justin Chang reviews 'Martin Eden,' an adaptation of the Jack London novel.
