More Entertainment than History

When I started listening I was hoping for a true analytical look at history’s disasters and what caused them. However, that’s not what this show is at all. It’s more like hearing someone share a “Today I Learned” fact with their friends. There’s very little research or analysis. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone wanting a serious look at history.

I‘ll give credit to the hosts for making the topics fun and entertaining. It’s not satire, as one review stated, it’s just a lighter view on history. If your looking for entertainment more than history this might be for you.

Super funny, yet full of great info!

Rebecca and her guests are hilarious at breaking down some of the biggest events in history. Despite the levity, I always learn new and super interesting facts! Great podcast to listen to anytime!

Wikipedia Style

More entertainment than history. They basically read Wikipedia and discuss what they’ve “learned” from that. It’s interesting enough, I suppose, but your hour is likely better spent elsewhere.
