Listen: Hear the fascinating truth about Christopher Columbus

NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 20: The face of the iconic 13-foot statue of Christopher Columbus stands in the 810-square-foot "living room" art installation by Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi on September 20, 2012 in New York City. Viewed as a piece of conceptual art, "Living Room", sits 70-feet above ground level and is only accessible via a scaffold-encased staircase that has been temporarily built around the Columbus Monument in Columbus Circle. Beginning September 20, up to 25 people at a time can enter the living room and view the 1892 marble figure of the Italian explorer. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

Texas native and author David Barton joins Pat Gray and producer Keith to shed some light on the history of Christopher Columbus and the reasons for the many misconceptions surrounding the Italian explorer.

"The charges about Columbus come primarily from Columbus' crew," said Barton. Columbus stood trial for accusations of rape and pillaging and was exonerated for the things his men had accused him of by the king and queen of Spain, but academics leave this important fact out as Barton explained on the program.

"This is what the professors keep quoting," added Barton. "This is pure indoctrination because it's not about truth anymore because if it was about truth you would read the whole letter or you would point out the fact that Columbus was exonerated of all these claims, but that doesn't get done so we know it's indoctrination at that point."

Barton offers a fascinating and truthful discussion about Columbus and provides actual documentation of the accounts of what Columbus experienced upon arrival. Listen to the full podcast here.
