Informative

Informative show, thanks for making interesting parts of history more accessible

My only suggestion would be that the info could be planned into a more cohesive storyline, making it easier for a less familiar listener to follow key plot points

Elementary School Communic

I love to listen to anything history and when I saw your "The History Files" I immediately downloaded it. To make a long story short, I made a mistake. The first podcast I listened to was #90 from 9/8/17 on Pirates. After elementay school conversation about the media/hollywood movies etc. you finally started to get into the main objective of the podcast, Pirates. You mentioned during the first 12 minutes of the podcast that you could tell a good pirate movie within the first 5 min of watching it. Once after 5 min of watch this one particular pirate movie you were reading to throw up it was so bad. Well listening to this pocast after 5 min, I felt the same way but I endured for 15 min. I am glad that you are not producing anymore podcast. You lack any seriousness or professionalism to the subject at hand. Listeners can listen to 1001 Heroes, Legends, Histories and Mysteries with Jon Hagadorn if you want class and professionalism. Listen and learn.

Analysis is just wrong

I listened to the episode about the White Rose and it was just okay for a history podcast *until* they got to the well-debunked idea that Nazis and Communists were all “Leftists”. Then they said the *real* “Right” is monarchists and the “Center” is American Constitutionalists. Not mentioned? Fascism. Kind of an important point on the spectrum, especially in a discussion of WWII!!! I’ve never even heard that level of nonsense before.
Yes, Nazis had Socialist in their name. But actions speak louder than words. If you can’t see past a name like that, you have no business “educating” others.
