You know a good podcast...

...when you catch yourself reflecting on it between episodes. I stumbled on this one and binged my way through 39 episodes (so far). It is not highly produced with background music and sound effects. It’s just an excellent story told well. Matt “pulls back the curtain” from time to time to let us know how differing historians interpret events. This adds depth and texture to the story.
