Best History Podcast

There are many different history podcasts and styles. This one suits me just right. He is amd amazing storyteller and the weaving of narratives is impressive. I have learned so much and I especially learned a lot about the Buffalo, NY the area I grew up in. I always thought there was more to the story of North America history. American centered podcasts don’t seem to get into the nitty gritty of history and more seem to follow the big stuff only. Thank you for your podcast. I never knew I wanted it so badly. Should have known a Canadian would provide a better history for New York State and the early Pacific Northwest than an American. Ya’ll are a lot better at self reflection than we Americans. Excited for the future eps, thank you!

Couldn’t get past the bias

I get that all podcasts are presented from a perspective. But I turned this off after the introductory episode. There was just too much kissing of Trudeau’s feet and waxing eloquent about how wonderful Liberals are, compared to those vile xenophobes (i.e., everyone else).
