Really good again

This is a really good podcast. Especially explaining why and how communist took power in the old Countries of Eastern Europe. Can’t wait to hear more about the Hungarian revolt.

Pronunciation

I have an undergraduate history degree concentrating in World War I, World War II and the Cold War. I find the hosts facts to be accurate and well organized. However, the pronunciation of Slavic and Magyar names is so atrocious it’s distracting from the commentary. The host needs to solicit some coaching on the names. You don’t have to understand the language to be able to pronounce.

Great educational podcast!

Love the historical perspectives. Would love to hear your thoughts on the current conflict in Ukraine.
