Speaking of neglected history, here's something in the same vein. Omitted is an independent podcast interested in the sort of details that might be reported at the time of an important event, but which eventually slip under the tide of history. This show aims to stand in the way of that erosion by bringing half-forgotten stories-behind-the-story to our attention. Each season takes a specific event as its premise - in Season 1, it's the sinking of the Titanic and in Season 2, Pearl Harbour, while the recently launched Season 3 focuses on the Civil Rights Movement. A dozen 10- to 20-minute episodes then describe, for example, the two little boys who were kidnapped by their father to travel on Titanic; the story of Collapsible B; and the man who inadvertently deprived the ship's iceberg spotters of their binoculars. These engaging, lightly sound-designed accounts are narrated and produced by Corey Constable, with support from the Delaware County District Library.
