“The Rapture”

This is an almost impossible subject to discuss in an intellectually “solid” way, and for the first few minutes, I thought, “Uh-oh, they won’t be able to pull this off. Too much arcane knowledge, that whiff of seminarian naïveté... “. But, they did pull it off! Their solid knowledge of political history during the entire time that these trends were developing grounded the thing. Then their precision about Who said What, exactly was the icing on the cake. A madly important phenomenon, which this program has clarified

Bragg is a BOSS

Bragg is a great host. He’s dealing with HUGE egos. The fact that we can learn anything is thanks to Melvyn’s preternatural ability to reign in these massive eggheads. I will always be a fan.
