A Wonderful Journey

This is a great podcast. Sure, I have some quibbles: sometimes it feels like Sebastian is almost too generous with his subjects, giving them more intellectual latitude than I’m inclined to offer, but ultimately he uses that as a rhetorical strategy to more deeply interrogate the falsehoods associated with and proffered by the individuals whose histories he digs into, so I can’t be mad at it. Sebastian is extraordinarily good at so many things: synthesizing his research on a topic into a compelling narrative without oversimplifying the matter at hand; debunking falsehoods in a comprehensive way without condescending to those who might have believed in them; and unabashedly calling out the various bigotries that frequently underly a lot of historical falsehoods. He’s lovably goofy and brings a very personal and humane touch to the things he covers, and so the occasional cheesy joke only adds to the enjoyment of learning about history from a very real and relatable human being. His self-recorded musical interludes are satisfying, too. I recommend this podcast without reservation.

The perfect drinking game for history buffs!

This is a fun, zippy podcast that doubles as a drinking game. Every time you hear the word “actually” take a drink. You are guaranteed a buzz. Be warned, you could get alcohol poisoning.
Still fun.

Great debunking of historical myths

Not only is this informative, Sebastian Major’s presentation style is funny, engaging, and personable. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite podcasts.
