Amid informative and lively, a WOW

Thanks for making historical insights so exciting. Exploring the ‘American frontier’ is a gem.

Everyone should listen to this podcast!

In these crazy times I appreciate that they are holding media accountable, even themselves. They call out bad behavior, poor reporting and shoddy journalism. This podcast helps our democracy by educating the electorate, demonstrating critical thinking and standing up for journalism at a time when true journalism is under attack.

Best on NPR...

... with the exception of Open Source. Good, in-depth reporting, asking questions that others aren’t, and avoiding the usual cast of pundits when looking for answers.
