This is a pretty great podcast. I’ve been listening and relistening for years. Adam covers a lot of topics, so I find myself coming back for reference often.

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!
