    The Rise and Fall of Napoleon Bonaparte | "The Enlightenment on Horseback"

    The Rise and Fall of Napoleon Bonaparte | "The Enlightenment on Horseback"

    "At the turn of the 18th century, the greatest nations in Europe, separated by only 21 miles of water, offered two distinct ideologies that would shape the new century. In England, there was democratic, constitutional monarchy; in France, the cataclysm of revolution had dragged the absolute King from the throne and replaced him with the Mob. Out of the maelstrom emerged a military leader, Napoleon Bonaparte, commander of the revolutionary army, who went on to conquer Italy and Egypt before returning to Paris to proclaim himself Emperor. As Napoleon gained power in France, the world stood on the brink of total war. For out of the furnace of the Napoleonic Wars, the modern world was born."
    — Robert Harvey, The War of Wars, 2006 —

Rational lesson

I wasn’t sure how to hit like on the episodes so I’m letting you know here that I really enjoyed them and would like to hear more! Love your show!

Wanted to write a second review but it just went to edit. Just spent a Sunday morning at work listening to the good the bad and the ugly movie review (the 2nd one) and completely enjoyed it. Was feeling a little stressed and anxious but it took me out of my head and was an enjoyable distraction. Thank you for these episodes and all your work!

Rich conversation

Great podcast! The hosts balance each other well. It’s like eavesdropping on rich conversation in an old tavern; which I think is what every podcast aspires to be.

Extraordinary Podcast

Jon Streeter graduated with Honors from Hillsdale College in Michigan. This is where he read all the founding father’s great works, read Mein Kampf in English as well as in German, interviewed several brilliant people including Margaret Thatcher and Sir Martin Gilbert. He attended Oxford University where he received highest marks for his coursework there. He researches by investigating, not other people’s opinions, but original sources. He works 60-70 hours per week, pouring his heart into his passion for the Truth in History. Don’t be fooled. He is NOT just “a high school teacher”!

This is an outstanding podcast.
