Love it

I am a female in my 30’s who loved history in school. I just recently found this podcast. I throughly enjoy it. I love how the host explains things in a mostly unbiased way and in terms almost anyone can understand. It’s definitely easy to listen as I frequently turn it on while walking or driving.

P.S. as a nursing home social worker, I love the bit in season 3 about Jane adams, who is often taught in social work classes as the founder of our profession.
