Absolutely love it !!

Excellent host (Gerry P) interviews authors of books and magazines about the Civil War. I started listening to his earliest shows and it gets better every year! Each show continues into the next without stopping and starting each episode. The breaks are annoying, just because I want to hear the rest of the discussion. GREAT AND FREE.

Great podcast overall...

I've listened to a bunch of episodes, and have really enjoyed them - sometimes in spite of the host. Often I find myself fast-forwarding through the first 10 minutes to avoid him blathering on about his college as if we're all alumni. Also, he is an academic and occasionally displays an elitist attitude. Not saying it's un-warranted, just gets on my nerves - such as his comment on Civil War websites (history is best left to the experts at college presses) and his half-joke about tourists of Civil War battlefields (citing Gettysburg residents referring to them as the 'god-damned tourists' by the end of season). I find this underlying sanctimony to be somewhat cringe-inducing as a history buff who would love to see more newcomers feel welcome to this fantastic hobby. Why not make it accessible to everybody? This isn't quantum physics, it's history, and academia might do well to realize it is not the sole arbiter of "how it really was" to the average person. Otherwise, it is a fine podcast and I've learned a lot. I meant it as constructive criticism. I genuinely feel that he's got a great podcast and have recommended it to several people.

A-1 show

Very Well Done. Such a WIDE variety of topics. For as long as this subject has been studied there is just Soooo much more that can be looked into,from each individual Regimental History--each of which is chock FULL of MANY fasinating stories--to each individual military commander (of Corps,Divisions,Brigades,etc.),THIS is a show that can go on & on for Quite some time more.
Must say,not every episode is for everyone,each of us may have our individual interests in the Civil War but, Gerry,you do a Great job.
As a host, & interjecting what goes on with you & the happenings in your life,i like it. It's kind of like getting to know you as you do the show. so in a sense,we,as listeners,are kind of making a one sided friendship (not ever having met you in person) & getting to get together once a week, hang out & taking all things CW.
Lookin' foreward to each Next Show

See You on the Civil War Talk Radio...
