The Tom & Mac Show: The World Between the Wars
The Peace of Paris and its Aftermath: 1919-1939
(90 minutes of optimism and 10 of despair)
Mac Deford and Tom DeMarco are back for a twelfth year with their 100-minute History Roadshow. This time its about the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 and the peace it gave us (erghhhh). Among the characters you’ll meet are: Gustav Stresemann, the man who put Hitler in jail and who might have helped avoid war, Margherita Sarfatti, the “woman who invented Mussolini, the maddening idealist Woodrow Wilson, the semi-heroic Herbert Hoover, Aristide Briand and Frank Kellogg who together made war illegal (sort of), and the heroic photographer, Erich Solomon, who recorded them all and paid for it with his life.
