Please Improve Titles

I absolutely love this podcast and all of the interesting stories you share

I really wish though, that you would make more of an effort to make it clear in either the title or description that an episode is a reupload. I got so excited that the 4/2/19 upload was a NEW working tapes and was a little disappointed that it was not. All it would take is a “rebroadcast” I the title or description

Could have been good

Definitely could have been good if the hosts didn’t approach every topic with their SJW crap.

Wow

History and information nerds unite! Even if you aren’t someone who loves to muse over minutia, you will be awed at some of these fantastic tidbits. Nothing is long enough that you have to find time to fit it into your day. Just perfect!
