One of the best podcasts

Wow! So much information, I learned so much! When is the next season coming out?! I was telling everyone to check out this podcast...

Season 2?

More of this, please. This is an outstanding look at the history of the Civil War. It’s not meant to be comprehensive, instead it shines a light into the dusty corners that don’t seem to have made it into the recipe before the history of the war got baked, bagged, and set on the shelf. Listening to it was a revelation that called s lot into question. I wish these guys had the wherewithal and resources to take on the whole history of the country, but man would that take forever. If I could ask any podcast team to do a show about Hurricane Katrina, this would be the one.

Highly enjoyable and entertaining - uncivil is in my top 10 podcasts for sure. This show is not only eye opening and informative but also incredibly well written and produced.
