Customer Reviews


Great idea! The snippet of information is perfect for a quick lesson. As a middle school teacher, this podcast might be a little over my students' heads, but I could see it being very useful in high school, college, or for people studying for a citizenship test.

1 minute doses to review your civics class

Feeling that many Americans really do not know/remember their civics, I started listening to this podcast so I would not be one of them. I tried to get my kids to listen, but one may need to have had a high school level civics class in order to grasp these tidbits in a bigger picture. Without the bigger picture, the tidbits remain factoids that are not necessarily helpful or leading to understanding.

So, for anybody with at least a high school civics class under their belt, these 1 minute podcasts are a great review. As I said, most Americans don't remember their civics, as illustrated by statements made in the media and public by politicians, media pundits, in churches, in public throughout the country. I highly recommend this podcast, whether you are really interested or not. You will be a better U.S. citizen because of it.


These are nice, short lessons for anyone, especially high schoolers. It may be over the head of middle school students, but it couldn't hurt to try.
