Wonderful

Truly insightful, intelligent, and presented in a way that is pleasing, interesting and thought provoking.
I look forward to the next episode each time I finish the last.
Very well done.

I’ve loved this podcast since the early years. A staple in my library.

“What’s Not on The Test”

What an incredibly whitewashed episode. This man said Horace Man was creating education for all Americans in the 1840s when black people were enslaved and it was illegal and punishable by death for them to learn to read! What a gross dismissal of history. A country built on the backs of slaves has no character. I think in this episode Character is just synonymous with “whiteness”.
