Detailed history you won’t find elsewhere

The level of detail in this podcast is really wonderful. You will find history in this podcast that you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere other than academic volumes (and sometimes not even there). This is extraordinarily well-researched and engagingly told, a history of Britain and not just of its rulers.

Too much personal bias

Interesting podcast but there’s too much personal bias/opinion. Too much of “I think Event A happened because I believe Person 1 probably started Event B”. This is a history podcast, shouldn’t there be more facts??? If you can’t get the facts from documents, artifacts, etc., then say so, but don’t give your opinion on what you think might have happened. History is based on facts, not opinion. Say “Unfortunately, we simply don’t know.” Too much conjecture. If you must give your opinion, back that up with some detail, some connecting information or link. “These three events happened, so it’s conceivable that the fourth happened.” But the podcaster doesn’t do that, he just throws out his opinion. Also, too much personal opinion on Hollywood and certain movies. Goes overboard with saying how bad a movie is. Specially The Eagle, which is about an event (the disappearance of the Ninth Legion) that no one has yet been able to confirm whether or not it even took place. It’s Hollywood! If you’re looking for the truth from Hollywood, well... maybe you should look elsewhere. Anyway, I had to stop listening, the podcast became too frustrating to listen to. Too bad, because it is a very interesting topic.
