It’s not the worst

Ok, so sometimes it’s clear John is reading from Wikipedia (literally sometimes word for word) but y’know what? I like it. I like the sound effects and the dramatic music is a nice touch. It’s like your grandad telling you a story (sorry John!) I like this podcast and I’m going to keep listening 😊

Highly questionable objectivity

Perhaps my timing was bad, but I subscribed just as the episode about the 'Miracle at Cokeville' was released. What I got was a completely uncritical half hour of credulous bible propaganda. At a time when school children are being gunned down in tragic numbers, mindlessly regurgitating stories about divine intervention and their conveniently "random" nature is both distasteful and naive. I would expect a Historian to have at least some desire to separate truth from fiction. Sorry, I'm out.

I wish I could give you more stars.
