History Unplugged podcast drops

The History Unplugged podcast “celebrates unsung heroes, mythbusts historical lies, and rediscovers the forgotten stories that changed our world.”

In this episode, Scott Michael Rank, Ph.D. talks with Saved At The Seawall author Jessica DuLong about how mariners’ skills and professionalism determined the success of the spontaneous, improvised evacuation of nearly half a million people from Manhattan on September 11, 2001—the largest-ever boat lift in history.

They discuss the differences between the rescues at Dunkirk and in New York Harbor and highlight the harbor infrastructure that helped and hindered those efforts.
