Love this show

Anthony Comegna (his friends call him “Tony C”) is an extremely engaging historian and no list of history podcasts is complete without this one.

Onward and upward!

Anthony Comegna’s radio voice invites serious and exciting conversation on a variety of topics within the classical liberal tradition. The podcast is great even if you are not a classical liberal because it takes seriously the challenges and intersections of ideas outside of liberalism. Guests are academic experts who are particularly equipped to have great conversations.
