    In celebration of July 4th, I have decided to read Thomas Paine’s great pamphlet, “Common Sense” and hear the reason so many were willing to fight to break colonial ties with England and create a separate nation with a new form of government with liberty and freedom at its core. Enjoy!

Good stuff

The speaker obviously has a passion for the history of exploration of America. He covers a wide scope of explorers and has clearly done his research. I appreciate that no personal ideologies are included. Just fascinating history here.

On the downside, often there is irrelevant minutia included which does not really move the podcast forward. Also, unfortunately the speaker’s pronunciation is horrible, and each episode contains many mistakes as to personal and place names, adjectives, etc. This gives the impression that the speaker is simply reading from a script.

Overall, an enjoyable podcast.
