Great Podcast

Polish history is rich with intrigue, adventure, and periods of sadness, oppression and triumph. The podcast captures so many of the unique events that make up the fabric of Poland, its culture, and its people.

Amazing !!!

I’m learning about my parents country and your podcast is helping immensely in that respect. It’s amazing that this podcast exists since there’s nothing else like it. Podcast itself is clear and professional and easy to follow. I’d give it 10 stars if i could.

the history between history

I love the content of this podcast. I’ve listened to Dan Carlin’s history. Breathless! And Now we get to see how the sausage was made! This podcast is clean, clear and easy to listen to. and I love how Gilbert lets us breath with short episodes that hinge on the importance of the event and not just mere dates. It makes 2020 part of history for me.
