Fantastic

If you love history, or even just slightly interested, this is the podcast you should listen to. The way Jake places you in the shoes of someone thousands of years ago, good or bad, makes you feel like you’re living in that exact moment. This podcast will really open your eyes to both sides of history and help you understand the people living these scenarios. I’m absolutely hooked and have listened to almost all available episodes in about 2 weeks. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to see what else is in store!

P.s. So far I think my favorite episode has to be the WW1 Christmas episode. Something so sweet and human in such a terrible time and place. The Amistad is a close second though. Gotta love unexpected justice.

The sky isn’t blue!!!

I loved episode #28 New Blue. Is it possible that early humans couldn’t see the color blue? What a strange concept. This is no normal history podcast. It’ll teach you so many things you’d never cover in your 12 week college history class!

Give it one episode...

and you’ll be hooked. Jake masterfully weaves a story in such a way that you are transported to the time for when the topic takes place. I can’t remember how I stumbled onto this podcast but I’m glad I did. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite podcasts.
