Christopher Columbus

While he did sail the ocean blue in 1492, it's come to light that Christopher Columbus may not have been the person we all learned about in school.  He did trek across the Atlantic with the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria but where he landed and what he did once he got there raises a lot of questions.  In the latest episode of AHC Podcast, we take a deep dive into the actions of the explorer and see how your 4th grade teacher may have been lying to you the whole time.
