Welcome to Episode 61! Every December 7th we remember the attack on Pearl Harbor for good reason. Did you know that the Japanese military also executed coordinated attacks on three other U.S. Territories? For some reason, our K-12 history books don’t mention these much, but the Imperial Japanese forces also attacked Wake Island, Guam, and the Philippines. All three were U.S. territories with military bases. Our main story focuses on these three locations that were attacked within hours of the bombing at Pearl Harbor. We also take time to talk about the origin of the Mai Tai, a cocktail that evokes visions of Hawaii and other Polynesian islands. What’s the origin of the Mai Tai, and what are some issues with Tiki Bar aesthetics? We share that in our additional segment. If you want to read about the Filipino resistance fighters in World War II, there’s a great book called Philippines' Resistance: The Last Allied Stronghold in the Pacific by Stacey Anne Baterina Salinas and Klytie Xu.
