Customer Reviews


It's a great idea - to have an extensive series of short presentations on history. But the talks and dialogs sound like these are young people repeating what a textbook says. There isn't a depth of understanding behind them. And small errors such as misuse of words reinforces the impression that they don't really know what they're talking about.

Amazing show

15 Minute history is an incredible resource! A perfect podcast to listen to in the car or while cooking. I've learned so much!

Very Informative

i love the way this was presented i have learned a lot about the Russian Revolution and Ottoman Balkan and the excellent role they were playing in that part of the world. Finally Tomas Jefferson’s Quran was an Excellent presentation.
