Engaging history telling

This podcast is so engaging, I find myself completely engrossed when listening to it. Each season covers a new historical topic/event and presents the information in a relatable first hand perspective. For people that want to get more into American history, but are scarred from stuffy lectures, this is for you because it’s the total opposite!
