Intellectually stimulating and thought-provoking

Excellent. Very interesting views and perspectives on this important era of history. Mssr Wyman knows his stuff and how to tell story. Great use of contemporary thinking on economics, politics and migration. But this podcast is proper History with none of the charged commentary relating to the present day that was fashionable some years back.
