    In the mid-19th Century, scientists would upend everything human beings understood about themselves and the world around them, and they would drive that world forward into a second industrial revolution.

    Springtime of the Peoples

    1:38:50

    In 1848, the effects of the industrialization and financial modernization combined with the forces of burgeoning ideologies and class and national identities to create a year of revolutions. Uprisings against the existing order swept across Continental Europe – although these missions failed almost everywhere. It marked a turning point in world history – a flashpoint in the political and economic transitions underway – and for us, it will mark the end of the First Industrial Revolution. Submit your questions for the upcoming AMA episode here. Check out Math!

    Victoria and Albert

    54:03

    Telling the story of the Industrial Revolution would not be complete without spending some time on Queen Victoria and her consort, Prince Albert. Her long reign came at the height of British power and, together with her hard-working husband, she forged a legacy that embraced change. Under her rule, the economy was modernized, the constitution became more democratic, and the country promoted new learning and new technology.  Support the Industrial Revolutions on Patreon: https://patreon.com/indrevpod This episode is sponsored by the Techmeme Ride Home Podcast: https://www.ridehome.info/podcast/techmeme-ride-home/ Also check out Tesla: The Life and Times Podcast: http://teslapodcast.com/
