Focus on the subject at hand
Completely agree with “Spencer shooter”. By the end of the first segment on Jefferson Davis’ treason trial ( or the lack thereof) we had learned only the book’s title, author’s name and that the book had footnotes rather than endnotes. The show then ended with several regrets about running short of time and things left not discussed. Discussions are usually interesting when they do occur.
please see subject line!
Like many modern historians, much of what is discussed leaves out important historical context. In its place, the host invokes trendy left wing talking points and comes across as self-righteous in hindsight. It may help him fit in at university where there is no diversity of viewpoint, but it is not good history.
