Excellent

A compelling exploration of one of the most fascinating periods of modern history. The guest speakers are real experts and the host is brilliant at asking the right questions. This is one of the few podcasts where I regularly save episodes for repeated listening.

A new perspective on history

While I'm not much of a sports fan, I am a big fan of history podcasts that teach me something I didn't already know, and this one certainly fits the bill. Has a lot of stand out episodes that explain the historical context of things we may remember, but didn't fully understand at the time.

Fascinating

Really great look at the way that popular culture (sports in this case) are influenced by and can influence politics.
