Perfect Podcast to Spark Your Interest

This is a great series that perfectly condensed important topics in all aspects of Japanese history. It really is a great gateway to start researching further on certain subjects. It even cover topics that average Japanese tend to ignore, or fails to teach in school!
Thank you very much!
