Episode 35: COS History 201 – Military Bases, The Broadmoor & Philip Anschutz


IMG_8819.JPGIn the last history episode we covered General Palmer, Myron Stratton and Spencer Penrose and talked about the philanthropy and pioneers that started Colorado Springs. In COS History 201 you get a good look at three important aspects of our city: How we got so many military bases,  the interesting history of The Broadmoor Hotel area and Mr. Philip Anschutz who owns the Broadmoor, The Gazette and many other things (how far do his tentacles reach?).

Listen is as The History Man, Scott Spillman, takes us on a journey that affects us all today!  Also, be sure to connect with the Colorado Encyclopedia Project for interesting history and facts about our state.
