Dan from Canada

This podcast is amazing !!! Thoughtful balanced subjects with extremely knowledgeable guests. Dan does a great job coming up with unique and fascinating new topics with every episode. Did you know that women experience better orgasms under socialism? Of course you didn’t, Dan Snow did, and he does an amazing job on this podcast. On behalf of the fans Dan, thank you for the great job you’re doing. Keep up the tremendous work.

Too much time spent on WWII

While I am a fan of WWII, I find that he spends way too many episodes on this one singular topic, as though there isn’t any other type of history. Also way too many male historians who are featured; would like to hear from some female historians more frequently.

Interesting but too much fawning by the jhost.

I have listened to about thirty podcasts and most have been interesting. However, I cannot take anymore of the host’s fawning over some of the guests. It was putting me off the topic under discussion and my breakfast Switching to the other history podcasts.
