Challenging

Each episode is rich in content. Also, something of a challenge to listen to since everything is at a fever pitch and the quote method is eccentric. Certainly worth the time, but I’d prefer to read it.

Had to stop listening

The cheesy changes to the voice track for quotations and the oddly-spaced jingle were too annoying. It was like 25 mins of history packed into a hour long podcast. Plus the level changes blew my ears out. Lasted through two episodes.

Vitally important

Now more than ever a program like this needs to reach as many people as possible. The freedom of expression is a finite resource, it seems. It needs a history and protection. Both needs are met here in his show. Thanks!
