Great podcast

Have been listening for a year now here and there. This podcast has been great to fill the time, the Cold War is one of my favourite periods of history and this podcast is full of great info and facts.

Used to be a good podcast

This podcast has unfortunately bogged down and has become a modern history of the United States race relations during the mid last century. For the last six months there had been nothing but racism and American civil rights.

Very informative

Great summary of many details of a fascinating period in history.
What is the amazing theme music?
