Early American Resistance to the Capitalist Policies of Alexander Hamilton
A 5 week study and discussion with Jim Costanzo, founder & director of the Aaron Burr Society
Was the U.S. Constitution a betrayal of the American Revolution? Did the founders intentionally frame the Constitution to establish a financial aristocracy based on patriarchy and white supremacy?

The seismic tremors that the October Revolution sent through Germany, Hungary and Italy are well known to students of the post-World War One Europe. Less familiar is the fact that the revolution’s ripple effects were felt as far to the west as Ireland.

ANYA is a love story and genetics mystery coming in 2019. The film began in 2014 with Jacob's seemingly random question: how do species diverge? ANYA's story about a couple and the evolutionary geneticist who discovered the unusual source of their infertility was born. To come up with a concrete, plausible source of speciation, we reached out to the National Academy of Science's Science & Entertainment Exchange. They connected us with two amazing geneticists at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Ting Wu and Dr. Ruth McCole lent their research on ultra-conserved elements of DNA to the film and...
