Always Interesting

This is always an interesting podcast. Questions, theories, and the ideological underpinnings that have shaped history are interrogated with rigor. The comforting myths are peeled back and what is revealed shows the way power gets weakened or strengthened, threatened or embraced, concentrated or dispersed, hidden amongst the few or realized within the many. I look forward to each episode.

Great podcast

Agile conversations, objective opinions, good research, accurate and still easy listening and entertaining. One of my favorites!

Pretty Eurocentric

They have some good episodes but their eurocentrism pops up from time to time. One example is claiming the French Revolution was the only successful revolution.
