The United Nations: Another Charter has a Birthday

version of UN logoThe United Nations Charter is 70 years old today, and the UN Dispatch has recommended a  nice piece by Mark Goldberg on Global Dispatches and his tribute to the UN and its founding in the form of a podcast. In that podcast we hear Goldberg’s interview with author Stephen Schlesinger, who has written a book about the early history of the UN and its founding. Fact and anecdotes are analyzed and compared in the podcast, The UN Charter Turns 70,  and it is available on iTunes and Google Play. Did Churchill really get confronted in the bathtub and was the name “United Nations” just dreamed up? Find out bathtubnotreallychurchillsthrough this painless and entertaining way to learn the history. (Hat tip to UN Wire from the United Nations Foundation).
