    Summary 1: The Third Republic

    Summary 1: The Third Republic

    This is a new series of episodes that are designed to solve one problem, this podcast is going to take a long time. One side effect of the amount of content the podcast needs to cover is that there are times when there is information from previous episodes or series that originally released years in the past which is now important background information for episodes that are about to release. This is where the summaries come in. Moving forward I will drop in a few summaries at appropriate times which will take a old series of episodes, in the case of today's episode the Third Republic series, and condense the entire series down into one roughly 25 minute episode. Obviously this will not have the detail level of the earlier episodes, but it will allow for the key facts and themes of the earlier episodes to be brought back into everybody's memories right before it is most important.

Amazing podcast. I listen to it almost everyday at work. If you like history and want to have a more in depth look at World War 2 then this is the podcast for you. Amazing research and work.

Turn down the pirate jig music.

Great podcast. However, in addition to being obnoxious,the volume on the music in between commercial brakes needs to be turned way down. It blows out my eardrums when listening through my AirPods.

Lots of information but easy to understand

There’s a lot of great history podcasts but Wesley does a particularly good job presenting a lot of information in a way that easier to understand. I love the way the pod is broken up into focused sections by specific subjects. Incredibly well researched and well done.
