WWI Centennial podcast

The mix of reportage, week to week narration of events and highlights on a wide range of WWI related topics, plus coverage of centennial connotations has been superlative. Well balanced. excellent content and consistently
Good production value.
A wonderful source for armchair historians, and teachers and students.

andrew_colonel ,

World War I History must listen.

I’m an avid listener of this podcast and appreciate learning about new WWI topics from the numerous guests who are interviewed from week to week. I also feel that we are experiencing history in the making as the WW1CC commemorates the Centennial.

Disappointed Millennial ,

We want more!

Love all the different topics brought up about the Great War. And what everyone is doing to commemorate it! Definitely a good listen for on your way to work.
