I have listened to many interesting interviews with people who really know their stuff. Sometimes the guest sound quality suffers from a poor phone line, but great content.
Last one with Mr Ricks is too political
Have listened faithfully to every podcast. Now that you had an obvious Anti trump person on could you put a Trump supporter on like Mark Levin who has written about our founders for years not just after he was shocked by an election. Totally turned off by last episode. If it continues to get political I will no longer listen.
Big expectations, confident i will provide
The website already has become a highlight of my everyday life. The book series and annual volumes are must purchases for me as well. I cant get enough of this era’s history. Im confident that this podcast will become a another great source for information to the American Revolution.
