The Born Yesterday Podcast

Well this podcast was really good. I say was because he stopped making episodes back in ‘14. Bummer, I enjoyed every episode which is more then I can say about most history podcasts. Come on dude make some more you know you want to.

Obnoxiously Politically Correct

History from a liberal, politically correct angle with many baseless claims. The author even admitted so in Aztec episode.

Sit Back and Enjoy the Tale

I binge-listened to all of the episodes. Joey's narrative flows smoothly through the ins and outs of the histories he weaves. The topics are sometimes quirky and unexpected but, all of the episodes are very enjoyable. He's put a great deal of thought and attention into some obscure events and his episode on Sea Shanties has been like a knock out punch. I'm actually hooked on this musical genre now that before the episode I didn't know existed. Thank you Joey! We're ready for more.

Addendum: Joey’s podcast on the sea shanties has remained my favorite among all my other favorites. I just keep downloading it year after year.
