Best podcast ever
Keep up the good work please, you really know what you’re speaking about. Thanks a lot!!
Currently studying for my social studies content knowledge PRAXIS II and this podcast has been the best study tool I’ve found so far. Very easy to follow and to the point. Thank you!
An Error or Two
I am halfway through episode four and already have come across two errors (in date only, as far as my limited knowledge goes). The first of these errors is to be found in episode two. Jamestown was founded in 1607, not 1606. The second is in episode four when it’s said that Bacon’s rebellion was a 1776 even when it was 1676 when the event occurred. I would say, therefore, that this series is a good resource for those who have a general knowledge of the timeline of American history (so they can be aware of any faults in the dates given) but not a good resource for those well versed in the timeline for detail isn’t something too deeply explored.
