Such a great way to learn about people & events

Love this podcast so much! Mike is the consummate story teller. I love the way he is able to keep the subject a secret until the end. I love history and Mike is able to deliver each time with a flare of surprise.

Keep it up Mike!

Peace in troubled times

With all the news and shut downs because of the pandemic I was looking for something uplifting to listen too on my runs. I found this and have not been disappointed. It reminds me of Paul Harvey’s “Now you know the rest of the story” Thank you Mike Rowe and his crew for all the positivity you bring to the world, it’s much needed🙂
