Dive deep into history and learn the stories too violent and crazy for the textbooks and documentaries. Sarcasm throughout but still as grounded to reality as possible. Battles, sieges, politics, and good old fashioned murder. Series are episodic, start at lowest decimal to get story in right order

Well enjoyed

Over the course of the last year I have thoroughly enjoy Neil’s take on history and narration on many historical topics. Keep up the good work!

Love this show

I love that a "Regular guy" has taken the time and effort to bring these historical stories to us. Usually lighthearted, always fun and very well researched. Thanks Neil!

Funny and engaging

I binge-listened through forty episodes and Neil gets better and better with each new series.

Even though he discusses topics that have been covered by other podcasts his funny tangents and inclusion of quirky facts make it seem like I’m learning about the crusades, Alexander, etc. for the first time again

I really appreciate the sources episodes at the end of each series since I love reading about history and the sheer number of books on any given topic is overwhelming so this gives me an idea of what to buy on amazon. Keep up the good work!
