Top tier history podcast

Well structured and extremely informative. Deep library of episodes and just keeps getting better.

Was great but has lost its way

This podcast used to be one of the very best history podcasts out there. I’ve been a subscriber from the beginning but now I have to let it go. The detail put into developing the episodes doesn’t seem there anymore. The commercials are now loud and jarring. The episodes from the beginning through Versaille are great; then just turn it off.

Good overview but flawed

The host seems to think he’s racing someone else to get to the finish line and it shows in his research up to his presentation.
Research is often very vanilla. He concentrates on representing current scholarly opinions but ignored prior opinions or newer more radical viewpoints. Again he appears to be hurrying.
His attention to detail, especially with pronunciation, is abysmal. It’s not that hard to get these names/words correct.
Finally, he still feels like he’s rushing through his script in a monotone. After 4+years I would have thought he would relax.
