This week Helena is excited to tell Vicki and the listeners about the fall of the Aztec Empire. This is another TWO PARTER. In today's part one, Helena tells us about the Aztec - who they were, where they lived - and about the arrival of the Spanish in the neighborhood.
This week we are pleased to bring you part TWO of two on the fall of the Ottoman Empire. In this second part we get into the independence movements that emerged in the 1800s, the emergence of the Young Turks, and the political machinations during World War I that shaped the modern Middle East. We recommend that if you have not checked out part one you give that a listen first.
