Unknown History

Short, very short stories with sometimes questionable accuracy. Sounds like narrative myths. No sources. Because every thing is bookended with ads, listening back to back is annoying. Speaker spends More time promoting book and ads than providing content. If your searching for LOFO stories, or if you are public school teacher.. this podcast is for you.
