Awesome history lesson

I've never been good about paying attention to history books or class. This podcast is really well done, and I've learned so much! It makes me actually want to learn history because of the great storytelling skills of the producers.

Reliving history

The guests offer a vivid glimpse into events that would otherwise be read as facts in a textbook. Riveting and well edited. The host, Michelle, has a very pleasant voice. Excited for more!
