Three seniors at Unionville High School have created Kathakar, a podcast that discusses the turning points of history from unique perspectives, writes Jen Samuel for the Daily Local News

A Sanskrit word, Kathakar translates in English to “one who tells a story.”

Arnab Sircar, Aniruddh Mutnuru, and Ansh Patel met in middle school. They bonded over their shared love of history, science, math, and technology. 

Two Unionville history teachers pushed the boys to create the podcast, which is available on Spotify, Apple, Google, and more. It features experts and topical thought leaders to discuss their takes on different historical milestones. 

Professor John Moser, Chairman of the Department of History and Political Science at Ashland University, joined the podcast on the first episode, “The July Crisis,” which aired in January 2021. 

Since then, episodes air once or twice a month. 

“I look at history as the people I’m meant to honor,” Mutnuru said. “With our discourse, and our information, and our drive to share knowledge, I think that we’re able then to honor their memories and carry on making new history for future generations.”
