Can Billy Joel help disentangle one of the most complex periods in modern history? Investigating the fraught nature of American, Korean and Cuba-Soviet Union relations from 1949 – 1991, We Didn’t Start The Fire is a new history podcast with a lyrical twist.
Produced by Crowd Network, each week a new line from Billy Joel’s song will be used to unravel a different topic at heart of this moment in time. The start of the series will join the dots between American cinema starlets, the rise of communism in East Asia and the advent of television in homes across the West.
