Very engaging

Great podcast.. lots of really good information on some well known and lesser known events..
My only criticism is that its very U.S. focused.

Magyarbertie56 ,

Fascinating

Always very interesting and well researched. Recommended.

Very average speculation

This guy doesn't understand the value of what draws people to history. It is mostly self indulgent ranting from an immature mind that is more interested in trying to impress with his "academic prowess" rather than to add to others. If I could give it zero stars I would.
