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.

Good stories told too quickly

Love the historical facts and fun story telling. However, in my opinion the story teller speaks to quickly. Usually I am on the bus or driving from work, or even laying in bed, while listening, so speaking a little more slowly is preferable for me. Otherwise good information and interesting

Excellent show!

I’ve liked this show for awhile, a concise and entertaining narrative on a lot of obscure historical events and themes. Savagely underrated. Inspired me to do my own podcast even! If you like narrative history and good old fashioned story telling, you’ve downloaded the right podcast!
