Excellent history pod

Right up there with the Revolutions Podcast in terms of the host’s incredible ability to bring history to life in all its rich context and complexity.

If you love freedom

Two stars because if you’re a cop then listening to this show will make you better at infiltrating socialist groups and that will bring you some joy.
