Forgotten History, Forgotten No Longer
I love to tune into this podcast each week and see what new topic or person is going to be discussed. The format of the presentation so far has been great, and I’m thoroughly enjoying each episode.
The website is a little behind in the updating, but at least the shows are released on schedule.
If you haven’t listened to the show yet, you’ve done yourself a grave disservice.
Things You Won’t Learn in History Class
This is a great new podcast filled with wonderful information that you won’t get in your history class, but that you certainly should know. This podcast is long overdue. Glad to see it!
I love history so I was really hoping that this podcast would be a new staple
…but he needs a partner. Someone to bounce information off of and engage would take this from just ok to skies the limit.
Note, I have only listened to the first podcast so if he has sense changed to format, I will update my survey.
