Background noise

Why background noise. Annoying. Good podcast but don’t understand why we need the noise.

Fascinating Historical cases

I’m really enjoying this podcast. So much to catch up on! Love it.

Balanced, engaging, well-produced

As an academically-trained historian, I enjoy podcasts that balance entertaining topics with sound research that focuses on the fascinating stories of the past without tainting it with a poor narrator, subpar historical analysis, and a nauseating reliance on politically correct narratives. This podcast is compelling, enjoyable, and authentic. I have found each season intriguing. I enjoy history—it’s my profession—and it is this sort of content that can make everyone wanting to learn about the past.
