Rewarding Listen

Challenging, thought-provoking, and overall fascinating stories being told here. Definitely a program that requires your attention—but you’re absolutely rewarded for lending it.

One of my favorites

This is one of my favorite podcasts. The hosts are intelligent and entertaining. The topics are relevant and the historical context is much needed.

Almost all episodes are race centered

I originally was really interested as the podcast seemed diverse in tackling different historical topics. The history of American - Iranian relations was particularly interesting. However, the podcast cannot seem to do anything other than race-based themes. I thought the episode on the history of concentration camps was even used to provide a narrative for the controversial comments made by AOC.
