Give it one episode...

and you’ll be hooked. Jake masterfully weaves a story in such a way that you are transported to the time for when the topic takes place. I can’t remember how I stumbled onto this podcast but I’m glad I did. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite podcasts.

Excellent show!

I’ve liked this show for awhile, a concise and entertaining narrative on a lot of obscure historical events and themes. Savagely underrated. Inspired me to do my own podcast even! If you like narrative history and good old fashioned story telling, you’ve downloaded the right podcast!

Incredible!

The storytelling is second to none, and the topics are incredibly gripping. I find myself reacting so emotionally to almost every show. My favorite episode is definitely the one on the color blue. As a scientist and artist who studies the pigments and painting techniques of ancient middle eastern art, this episode really resonated with me. I can’t wait to listen to more!
