Greg with one g ,

James in wonderful…..

Ww2 is a category that Lacks personality on the various podcasts available. These two are not short on that, they do an excellent job of having a natural conversation about a variety of topics surrounding World War II that is both engaging and accurate. The One that fancies himself a comedian doesn’t give the U.S. enough credit for our role in the war. James Holland is outstanding, gives fair credit and criticism to all sides on the topic of the day. One of my favorite shows.

Ex USN SWO JO ,

Best podcast on WW2

Just a wonderful hour, twice per week, of educational and highly entertaining conversation on the 2nd World War, without the utterly irritating break-for-tea that the British armed forces are known to perform in the middle of serious contact…😂😂🤣🥲🤣🤣🤣
