Episode 125: Aztecs vs Spaniards: All Mexed Up

1h 32m | Oct 7, 2023

In advance of Indigenous Peoples Day this Monday, for today's tour we join our tour guides, Xan and Joe, in an exhibit focused on the clash between the Aztecs / Mexica people and the Spanish Conquistadors, while clearing up some of the often misrepresented history about Moctezuma II, and the bizarre failures of Panfilo Narváez.
