Best US history podcast

Can’t say enough about this cast. I tell everyone about it. Bruce’s research is so thorough, and he addresses historical controversies with good, confident analysis. His takes on presidents and the constitution are enjoyable and sharp.

Great content almost ruined by poor production values.

The actual content of this podcast is head and shoulders above anything else in the arena. The author is well spoken, offers much context, and thoughtful, informed insight. That being said, I’ve found more than one episode unlistenable due to poor production values. Historical clips and music often have phase issues that bring my ear physical pain and activate tinnitus. If these issues could be remedied, this would easily land in my top 5 podcasts.

Please edit your audio!

I’ve always enjoyed Bruce’s discourse and range of topics, but 5-10 seconds of dead air is distracting, and makes me check whether the podcast stopped. Broadcasting 101 teaches to edit out dead air. Or are these just musical interludes by John Cage? 😉
