One of the Best

This podcast is addicting if you love history, the Civil War, or just great story-telling. Chris is an awesome host and I hope he keeps it up. He does the perfect amount of technical history mixed in with human perspective. I prefer Chris to similar podcasters such as Dan Carlin.

Fascinating True History

The Mises Institute is well known for providing the unvarnished truth about everything. History is no different. Chris does a great job of weaving together the story with a libertarian perspective. It is NOT just a bunch of facts and statements thrown together. Chris thoughtfully provides a fascinating story about the history of the drug wars and the war between the states. Even if you're not a libertarian you will enjoy this podcast.

Too much Civil War

Great podcast and the content is dense, but I wish it covered more events. It took too much time on the Civil War so it lost my attention.
