War of the Worlds

The 150 years between 1529 and 1683 are conspicuously absent from your story.

Solidly one of the best podcasts

I love, love this show so much! I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is my current favorite. They do such a great job of presenting complex problems in easy to follow, interesting, 35-40min segments. I am so shocked how much I don’t know about certain really important historical events! Keep it up- grateful to have you guys for my runs.
