Boring. Need video or at least a narrated sequence of stills to bring topic to life...
Helps me grasp info
This gives me the extra info that I tend to forget and makes concepts easy to understand. There are a couple of awkward pauses but it's ok
a reason to hate history
Does this speaker NOT listen to his own podcasts? The only way he could is if he has insomnia. Terribly boring. This is what makes a person dislike history. His facts are interesting but his delivery is awful! Please listen to Mike Duncan's "A History of Rome" for an example of entertaining AND factual history. It really makes me angry that this man could be employed by Parkland College. History is wonderful, this man's teaching of it is not.
