To Prop, Jeff, Sophie, and Robert

I really appreciate Jeffery Epstein’s input in all the episodes. Really adds to the vibes yanno?

Anyways, I love these miniseries because I like the energy that Robert, Prop, and Sophie create when they all end up on the podcast together. It’s informative and also chaotic, which my ADHD brain appreciates a lot.

Keep doing what y’all do <3

Brilliant

Long live Robert, Sophie, Prop, and Anderson!

Really good, but not a “hardcore history”

An amazing podcast that gives a good history of fascist insurrections in history. They do not go in depth into the events, but deep enough for you to understand it and be able to dive deep yourself, and they are also clear about that and provide good reference material to dive into.

The format is very conversational, mostly between Evans and Prop. Evans giving the historical events and his opinions, while Prop acts as a bit of a cultural translator and comedic relief (though he is a smart guy, just not as educated on the historical events as Evans). Personally I enjoyed the dynamic, though looking at the comments it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
