Deep dive on San Antonio

I am 3/4 of the way through Season 1. I am hooked. Always loved the history of my adopted hometown. This podcast is excellent listening for anyone interested in Texas history. Great work!

Best San Antonio history teller ever!

Catch the stories that lead up to the Alamo battle of March 1836 then stories of the contentious years between Republic and statehood. This is the best researched San Antonio History I know of, including my grandma.

Phenomenal Series

I stumbled across this podcast about three weeks ago and was hooked immediately! Brandon excels in factual content, interesting character details and very professional delivery. He speaks very well and the script is so well written.

So impressed was I with this podcast that I downloaded his other works and have almost finished them as well.

There are many good podcasts available on the various topics of Texas history, but Brandon’s work successfully navigates the overly academic and the interesting story with
Grace and succinctness!
