Thought Provoking and Fun

It’s not easy to get the balance of thought provoking content and levity. This podcast challenges my view of the history I learned from a textbook, and brings it to life with narratives and primary documents. So appreciate the reference to primary sources!!!

The history that makes us uncomfortable...

I first listened to this podcast to research a fictional character I was developing. It was the episode on sex and sex workers during the gilded age in NYC. They deal with the details of history and life from the perspective of the marginalized... women, immigrants, African Americans etc as well as understanding that the context of the times and culture is imperative to understanding history, not just from the middle class white male, which, is what we’ve been taught for so long that it’s uncomfortable to hear the truth of how people lived and struggled. I’m glad someone is talking about it. I’m now hooked on this and listen every chance I get!

New Favorite

This podcast has become one of my top favorites. I’ve always enjoyed history, but American history has never held much interest for me. At first, I was afraid it might be too focused on American history for my taste. They do cover plenty of topics outside American history though, and so I gave it a chance.

I really like Dig’s format, with the historians presenting different aspects of the same topic, and the more I listen to the podcast and get to know the historians the more engaging the episodes are. I’ve even developed a new love of American history! My only regret is that I binged the episodes too quickly, and now I’m impatiently waiting for more. Thanks for a terrific podcast. You’re the best!
