300 episodes

For history lovers who listen to podcasts, History Unplugged is the most comprehensive show of its kind. It's the only show that dedicates episodes to both interviewing experts and answering questions from its audience. First, it features a call-in show where you can ask our resident historian (Scott Rank, PhD) absolutely anything (What was it like to be a Turkish sultan with four wives and twelve concubines? If you were sent back in time, how would you kill Hitler?). Second, it features long-form interviews with best-selling authors who have written about everything. Topics include gruff World War II generals who flew with airmen on bombing raids, a war horse who gained the rank of sergeant, and presidents who gave their best speeches while drunk.

Mexico

Your history of the war with Mexico and Comanche Indians. The Comanche Indian were horrible to all other Indians yeah patches how did the Comanches and vice versa they love to torture and murder women and children of all races that they did not enslaved You forgot to mention about the buffalo was a large business with Europe. They were slated for Europe fashions. And thank god we did get the states of Texas, New Mexico Arizona and California. My double great grandfather was killed in a battle in Mexico. Or hung for desertion. Depends of which family legend you want to believe LOL.
