DJ Kinney: Rhyming Our Way Through History


Kathrin gets to sit down with Dr. DJ Kinney, a historian who looks into dangerous chapters in history without flinching, to talk about hope and cynicism in a changing world. DJ Kinney researches, produces, and hosts The Cold War Vault podcast, which looks at this secretive period of history and peels back the curtain to reveal the humanity within.


There’s a lot going on in the world right now. No matter when you read this, something is going on in the world. Maybe there’s something shaking up your life. Maybe your world has undergone a slow, tectonic shift over several years or a sudden, massive upheaval.  Yet however change happens around us, we are left trying to find our way through the history we remember, the present we might not recognize, and a future we can hardly imagine. Yet we keep going on, hoping that we can look back on our lives to understand what has transpired.


We’re glad you’re with us today. It’s good to have you as a Friend for the Journey.
