Uniquely Engaging Perspective on History

The critics here say that CJ is presenting history from a libertarian anarchist perspective, and that is partially true. He consistently observes that state actors — even the heroes of your your public school history curriculum and right wing patriots — act in self-interest despite high-sounding rhetoric. His narratives frequently align with the same perspective of leftist historians such as Beard, Kolko, and even Zinn on many topics. He also aligns with an environmentalist’s sensibilities on economic development. However, he has a public choice perspective that distinguishes him from the left.
I don’t have to agree with every interpretation of the facts to find this podcast engaging. The ‘one star’ critics probably probably should look elsewhere for confirmation of their worldview.
My only criticism is that CJ tells a bit more about CJ and the production of his podcast than I’m interested in. But it’s his podcast and I can skip the stuff I’m not interested in.

Good job

If you love, and, or care about history this is the podcast for you. The topics are thought provoking and well researched. This podcast is refreshing because it’s not peddling an ideology it’s giving you the facts.

Dangerous History

I fail to see how listening to an isolated, semi-informed podcaster bloviate is better than face to face interaction with a real world expert.
