Deep dives

Real history on a period we all “know” but don’t truly understand.

Gastropod

In my opinion too much time devoted to historical evidence that touts contemporary liberal sensibilities. Sex, gender, race relations, sexuality. Important subjects but not worth the immense time spent on them; in this podcast and in today’s society.

Good but

Very informational but the host’s tone is too broadcast-y, would be more enjoyable if less scripted, more conversational tone
