Fantastic, diverse content. Host enthusiasm charming.

History Hit is a blast! It’s thought provoking and informative. Dan is also skilled at making it relevant to current issues, which gets him into a little trouble with tetchy Americans, especially when he insults Trump. I can understand why they might get annoyed, but Dan’s comments are generally in good faith and often on target.

As far as Dan’s overzealousness, I think it actually makes the show more engaging and fun, and adds some charm and quirkiness. It also keeps the bleaker subjects from getting too depressing.

On another note, I found this definition of overzealous on vocabulary.com, and it does kinda describe Dan’s more “excitable” moments ;)

“Overzealous describes someone who gets too excited about something” [...] If you're overzealous about something, you've gone too far, and you're probably starting to scare people.”

Biased

Host detracts from interviews. Also he has quite a number of episodes bashing Trump and inserts negativity about America into many of the shows. I wanted to listen for history not political opinions about a country that’s not his. Too irritating to enjoy.

Great

Great podcast. My only complaint is that it is often Recorded at a lower volume so when I’m playing it through the iPhone speaker it is difficult to hear. Through headphones and when docked with my car it is fine. Other podcasts on the apple app are fine.
