Interesting and well researched

One of my favorite listens. Great content, great connection of historical themes with today’s current events, easy to listen to voice.

Love this show!

One of my all time favorites. The take-downs and deconstructions of false narratives of history are masterful. Topics are interesting, research is excellent, and many of the episodes have made me think of historical events in new ways. Highly recommended.
