Impressive and Immersive Podcast

This podcast is immensely informative and entertaining, and a great way to familiarize yourself with the overarching political/historical trends of the modern era. I’ve been inspired to read further on some topics, particularly the French, Haitian, Mexican and now Russian Revolutions. Mike’s presentation is clear, with lots of dry humor and insightful observations peppered throughout. The History of Rome is a must listen too.

History Never Ends

Just heard 10-100. Bravo!!! This series is educational, entertaining, insightful, and a MUST for all who want to learn the whats, whos, and whys of world history. As Mike says, “causes become effects—-effects become causes”…and on it goes. History repeating. Will leaders ever GET IT and stop the insanity??…..I’m so sad “Revolutions” is coming to an end. Looking forward to the next project Mike Duncan has for us…
