Brit learning a lot

I'm British and knew little to nothing about the American civil war before hearing this podcast. I knew the US was built on white supremacy and slavery, but didn't know quite how deep this was rooted. This podcast tells untold stories of the Civil War, and does it in such an interesting and revealing way that even a Brit who knows nothing about US history, like me, can follow it. Excellent podcast, highly recommended.
