Customer Reviews

Whatukno ,

Great!

I was searching for a history podcast after binging every Dan Carlin episode known to man. The episode topics are great and Adam is very smart, able to talk about any subject with ease. I highly encourage people to try this podcast. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge on such a wide variety of topics. Keep up the great work!

Fantastic!

One of my favourite history shows. The topics are always extremely interesting and varied. The format of the show w/ guests makes the content both entertaining and easy to follow. Highly recommend!

Bite-size, approachable, diverse

Can't put my finger on exactly why I enjoy this podcast so much... I've listened to a lot of audiobooks and Great Courses series (which are tens of hours), so maybe it's the shorter format, two one hour segments, ish, that are easier to fit in. Maybe it's the conversational nature, where the guest often asks questions that I would ask. Or maybe it's the diversity of topics. Anyway, give it a try.
