The Expanse vs History: Founding Belter Nation vs Founding of U.S.

January 2, 2020

The Expanse might be set in the 2300s, but it is written by 21st century people and inspired in many ways from history and current political contexts. In this episode patron Omro Goldshtrom, history buff, joins Gil Kidron to find the very many similarities between The Expanse, the path towards the independent Belter nation and the histories of the United States and Israel. We will get into the founding of these immigrant nations vs the immigrant Belter nation, refugees, terrorism and more.
