Probably the best history podcast out there

My only problem is, it’s too short.

Everyone needs to listen to this set

This is an essential work of journalism. The postings are well researched and very clear. There are so many issues In our government and society that I don’t understand because I don’t know how we got to this point. This work really helps to clarify that. Excellent work! Keep it up!

Throughline Rocks!

This very interesting podcast covers a wide range of historical events/periods in an upbeat, intelligent way! Cool, very bright hosts, interesting contributing commentators and great music makes history very digestible! Give it a try. I learn a lot with every program.
