Customer ReviewsSee All
The host is fantastic, very caring about respecting the people in the stories. It’s also a more calming style than other history podcasts I like. They have fun, diverse topics that make me giggle a lot. Sometimes I wish they knew more about issues like unions or immigration detention so they don’t unknowingly repeat propaganda, but I am confident that as they continue to do this podcast they will learn more, and we can learn along with them. Keep going it’s great :)
Interesting and great stories
I really enjoy this podcast because the stories are interesting. Best part of working Saturday afternoon is when I can listen to the podcast in my office when the door is shut. I’ll save the cast as a treat to myself for working the weekend. Great stories. Keep up the great work! You make my weekend.
Fun show about America’s past
Lots of fun listening to Jordan’s research and trying to keep Jeremy on track. They pick really fun topics!
