Speed Levitch tackles Kansas & Missouri History in this Week's Episode of "Up to Speed"

Having met Speed Levitch at a party last year, it was awesome to see he is the star of a new show on Hulu where he takes on the history of a new locale each week commenting with the zany, sometimes poetic, often philisophical reflections he is famous for.

If you're a fan of his most popular appearance in the 1998 documentary The Cruise, then you'll know what to expect.

I was happily surprised by how much depth and insight was packaged into such a quirky show on such a convential TV platform. To see stuff like this coming into the mainstream is definitely a sign of the times.

It's kind of incredible that the ideas in this show aren't entirely obvious (such as the imaginary borders that give rise to nationalism and so much conflict being pretty silly when you think about it), but it's precisely shows like these that I think will creep this common sense into popular consciousness.
