Ep. 39 - N&SH: World War I (Pt. 2)

We hope you enjoyed our Prometheus episode as a break from world war - we know we needed it. 

But now we return to our N&SH installment on World War 1 to discuss art and music that happened after the war. A lot of questions came out of the war, including how to respond to it in art and music. While some turned to the past, others pioneered new styles - all of which we'll see in this week's episode!
