What a hidden treasure ~ I just found it & binged watched all seasons!!! Highly recommended

Fascinating podcast

This podcast is intriguing. I just finished season 1 and am fascinated by all the connections made. Great work.

Good but...

There’s an addictive quality to this podcast. I love how I am able to learn about history and how some of it weaves together. But I do feel like I have to suspend my belief sometimes when the creators go through the “threads”. Some of the connections made seem to be a stretch because the logic seems to be whatever fits and ties these “threads” together. Like I expected in the latest season to go to the beliefs of Christianity and the teachings of Jesus since MOST of the commonality between the people they picked seemed to be that. But it was only given a nod not the exposition that I had expected. It’s definitely not an unbiased look at history, but rarely does anyone look at history without the lenses they want to use. Overall it’s worth a listen.
