Episode 133 Fidel Castro and the Revolution Part 2

JFK The Enduring Secret

Episode 133   is the second  fully dedicated episode covering Fidel Castro  and the Cuban Revolution. In this episode, we give an overview of the revolutionary years and chronicle the major events of the Cuban Revolution that took place during the period between the coup by Batista in March 1952 through the fall of the Batista government,  marked by his fleeing of the country on New Year's day 1959.   The aftermath and repercussions of Batista's coup would give  rise and voice to the  young Fidel Castro as a revolutionary force in Cuba. It is an extraordinary tale that we tell of Castros early attempts to overthrow the Batista government including the failed Moncada Barracks attack, his  trial and imprisonment, his subsequent exile in Mexico and his return to Cuba  when he  finally overtakes the Batista government in a guerilla campaign that eventually would win the day.  Join us over the next several episodes for more detail on the  Cuban Revolution  and how this  small band of radicals would overtake the Batista government .   It is here on this island nation where  the story eventually  converges around the modern Cubans, CIA men and the mafia.  All in one place.  Join us in this continuing miniseries on Cuban history  as we continue to set the stage and  explore  the forces that were shaping the world in that era of the twentieth century. It's history that   immerses us in the  Cuban story whose politics, geography, and economic circumstances would all collide and create an epicenter of geopolitical consequences. Consequences that would intersect  in a crescendo right at the moment that JFK was coming to the Presidency. Understanding the leadup and history of Cuba is critical to this part of the journey that is JFK the Enduring Secret.   Let us know  what you like about the podcast or just provide us with comments on the episode via  email at podcastjfk@gmail.com or get active in our blog for each episode at www.podcastjfk.com   Either way, keep listening, and join us for the whole series of episodes about the fantastic goings on that encompass this part of the JFK story. Now we enter the unknown with evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting. Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over  the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it,  were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!This series comprehensively explores the major facts,  themes, and  events leading up to the assassination in Dealey Plaza and the equally gripping stories surrounding the subsequent investigation. We  review  key elements of the Warren Commission Report , and the role of the CIA and FBI. We explore the  possible involvement of the Mafia in the murder and the review of that topic by the government's House Select Committee on Assassinations in the 1970's. We explore the Jim Garrison investigation and the work of other key figures such as Mark Lane and others. Learn more about Lee Harvey Oswald the suspected killer and Jack Ruby the distraught Dallas night club owner with underworld ties and the man that killed Oswald as a national TV audience was watching.  Stay with us as we take you through the facts and theories in bite sized discussions that are designed to educate, and inform as well as entertain the audience. This  real life story is more fascinating than fiction. No matter whether you are a serious researcher or a casual student, you will enjoy the fact filled narrative and story as  we relive one of the most shocking moments in American History.

This current series will take us  all the way through his triumphant toppling of the Batista government on January 1, 1959.  This first episode chronicles Fidel Castro's background, and his early years at the University of Havana. We explore his greed and avarice as well,chronicling some of his accumulated wealth as a dictator which Forbes estimated to be in excess of 900 million dollars, and estimate calculated  quite some time ago.   The aftermath and repercussions of Batista's coup would give  rise and voice to the  young Fidel Castro as a revolutionary force in Cuba.

Bible Translation, WWII, and Fidel Castro - an interview with Edward Case

Working for the Word - a Bible translation podcast

There are actually a lot of people in my family who are currently involved in Bible translation or were at some point, so I thought it would be fun and interesting to put together a series that tells their stories. Each one is unique, and my hope is that this will give you a window into some of the history of Bible translation and the different experiences and challenges that people have faced, especially here in Mexico. We’re going to start with my grandpa Edward Case, my dad’s dad, who is 101 years old and now lives in California. I got my uncle Jim who lives nearby to ask him some questions about his brief involvement in BT and subsequent missionary work in Cuba during the decade or so before Fidel Castro took over, which were some of Cuba’s golden years. Although his time working towards BT in Mexico was cut short by WWII, it’s interesting to hear the trajectory of his life and the way God used him and his family. workingfortheword.com | my books | twitter | music | Hebrew | academic articles | facebook | contact | download all episodes for offline

Ep7: The Fidel Castro of Chinese Venture Capital

ZER0 FUCKS GIVEN

The gang is back and Carson is pulling out all the stops to convince Krista to stay on as a fixture at Zer0 Fucks Given. The incels have infested Austin, TX for a crypto conference, where a Dogecoin-wrapped McLaren and scantily clad crypto hoes draw similarities to the hooker scene at Vegas self-storage conferences. Carson recalls his time in the Shanghai storage business, how he exacted his revenge on the Chinese VCs, and why he considers himself the Fidel Castro of China's venture capital industry. The crew marvels at the schadenfreude moment coming to crypto on the heels of Ponzi schemes imploding within yield farming. And Freddy takes a Porsche for a spin around a racetrack, which seems to have given him some misplaced confidence in making a bet about Carson.
