History of the world review
I am not an expert on the quality of podcasts. This is the second one I have listened to. I am very interested in history and I am so glad that I found this one. My compliments to Chris for his expertise and his ability to communicate what he has learned to the rest of us who were too lazy to put the research into Learning about the world we have inherited. Thank you so much.
A Gem of a captivating podcast!
Chris really delivers an entertaining and enlightening historical narrative of our history, as we know it, on this planet. Keep up the good work! Highly recommended!
A good place to wrestle.
I started back in March, and just caught up. I’ve been impressed with the amount of information covered in such a short time. You present the facts in a coherent way, but leave room for people to make their own conclusions. I, myself, have a Christian worldview, but I also am a amateur historian and love to wrestle with what I follow spiritually but see physically. I love how you unapologetically present the religious view unbiased, when they do line up with history and seem likely, and when they don’t. And that doesn’t even scratch my fascination with the Stone Age and classical worlds. A+ podcast and will continue listening. My only thing I don’t like is the reading of the messages and questions at the end, because it doesn’t hold my attention like the episodes but I respect that you do it. It’s be ironic if you read mine and I didn’t even hear it. You definitely deserve my review though.
