Info nuggets

Just the right length to learn something new every day. The ads really do run longer than the actual content tho which is frustrating. I hope they begin to make new episodes again soon

This Day in History Class

Yves is a talented writer and researcher. Her beautiful alto voice is easy to listen to. I hope to hear her on more and longer formats

If I want to hear old episodes, I can find them in the feed

I’ve really enjoyed listening to This Day in History Class since nearly the beginning. I love the tone and style that Yves brings to her storytelling, with a great mix of notable and lesser-known people and events.

But about a month ago the publishers started an incredibly annoying “double feature” where they rerun an old episode before the new current episode. This is a blatant excuse to insert more ads into the feed, and it also makes the whole podcast too long.

I loved This Day in History Class because it was short (less than 10 minutes) yet still informative and entertaining. Yves’ content is still wonderful. But I’m not going to bother listening when I have to skip past the year-old episodes that I don’t need to re-listen to, just to get to the good stuff— every day. I’ve sadly unsubscribed. If the publishers stop inserting old episodes, I’ll happily start listening again.
