Tell us about Manifest Destiny!

We’re starting off Season 2 with a miniseries we’re calling “The Consuls of Manifest Destiny.” In this three-part series, we’re talking about consuls in places that the United States was interested in not only trading with (like Tahiti) but also potentially acquiring (like Alta California and Hawaii).

We want to hear from you about what Manifest Destiny means to you. Leave us a voicemail right here, right now, and you may hear your voice in one of our shows! We’d especially love to hear from folks who study the maritime dimensions of Manifest Destiny, or who study the concept from the perspective of those who stood in the way of this white American dream.

You don’t need to be an academic in order to leave us a message!

Here’s what you need to tell us in your message:

  • Your name
  • Where you’re from
  • How you would describe Manifest Destiny and its effects, in 60 seconds or less

And that’s it!

If you don’t want us to include your name on the show, you can tell us that too. Leaving us a message means that you agree to let us use your voice on our show, but we won’t use your name if you’d rather we didn’t.

Just a note on using SpeakPipe: If you have an ad blocker such as Ghostery installed, you may need to pause it temporarily to send your message to us.
