Great podcast Jon

The first few episodes you got a little goofy, but you found your flow through the years. The only thing I don’t like on your more recent episodes is that some of your guests are hard to understand.

Conspiracy theorist.

Conspiracy theorist passing off wild ( and occasionally racist) wishful thinking as fact. Has serious need for an actual editor to handle the poor audio quality and frequent sniffles coughing lip smacking throat clearing etc.
Seems to only have historical interest in military campaigns with a heavy right wing revisionist take.

Like listening to a close friend

This podcast is one of my all-time favorites. Jon uncovers interesting stories and tells them so eloquently that they are a complete joy to listen to every time. Jon thank you for all the research you do and the effort you put in to tell these stories in an organized manner, even when the details are many! I have understood so much more about the people and places, war-stories, etc that you cover than I ever would have on my own. You make the stories come alive and make my imagination sing!

Also FWIW----->>>> @Modern Crusader You are calling Jon a "blasphemous fraud" and "vagrant" for, in a choice of racial sensitivity, not saying the N word while reading the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I'd like to point out that Jon is among the most respectful of story-tellers I've listened to, both to the stories themselves, and to his listeners. His family-oriented show is something parents and children can enjoy together, indeed our family has. If my girls (being brown themselves) heard him reading that word as is so often used in that particular work, they'd be offended and disinclined to continue listening and wouldn't benefit from the lessons the story has to offer. Would it be better that they never know of or read the work at all? Or is it better for them to hear Jon's voice reading it to them in a culturally appropriate manner, according to today's information?
Stop trolling. You've got the definitions of blasphemous, vagrant, and fraud wrong. You should google those words so you do not continue to use them incorrectly. It severely weakens your argument when you do.
