The Historical Blindness podcast is a discussion of interesting and largely forgotten stories from our past, with a specific focus on demonstrating the inscrutability, the ineffability, and the unknowability of the past. By examining cases of outrageous hoaxes, mass hysteria, baffling mysteries and unreliable historiography, we raise the question, “Can we trust history as we have received it?”

Pretty good so far- sometimes too short

Seems like right when it gets interesting, it’s over.

To all of the partisan reviewers who keep saying things like:
“keep politics out of it”
“Typical Libtard”
“Leftish propaganda”

You should take your own advice! Leave politics out of your review. Try using examples, facts, or sources. You’re just coming off as a child who disagrees because they feel like they should defend their “team” no matter what.

If you’re that scared to challenge your own ideas and feelings, that means you know your opinions won’t hold up to scrutiny.

An open mind doesn’t mean “lefty progressive”, it mean someone who is open to new ideas and one who is willing to learn or change if new information is given.

If you’ve held the same ideas, feelings and opinions on politics since you were a teenager, chances are you still are one...mentally. Both sides.

Revisionist

Crockpot revisionist with heavy leftist/Marxist subversive leanings. Avoidable.

Ads!

I’m not even going to bother listening to any of these podcasts, because of the ramp it adds I hear about it almost on repeat other sites.
