RUIZ GRANTHAM ,

Good for Adults Too!

Even though my eighth-grade days are well behind me, I find this podcast an enjoyable listen. There are two main reasons.

1) Dr. Glenn does not dumb things down, and even if I already know the historical details, his presentation of the big picture ideas is thought-provoking.

2) As someone who learned US history a generation or two ago, it is fascinating to see how much the teaching of the subject has evolved — for the better!
