This is great!

Hey I really enjoy the show!! :)

Roxy127 ,

Love learning again!

I really love learning about history that is never really talked about in school. These two make it so easy to understand and I feel like I can join in on the conversation with them. Keep up the great work and I am excited for more episodes!

Where where you when it was time for APUSH?

I was never very interested in history, but these two make history digestible and fun. I love how it feels like I’m in a room having a conversation with friends every time I tune into an episode. This podcast does more than remind me of things I should have known about history. This podcast reminds me that we are living our history in the now, and we hold power and responsibilities such as voting and remember the narrative of Native Americans, the black community, and reproductive rights.
