Customer Reviews

Storytelling at its best

You don’t have to be a Civil War buff to enjoy this podcast. Chris Calton has broken up the history of the war into a series of compelling fascinating tales that each stand alone but also fit into an overall narrative that make the podcast a must listen every week.

Very good historical content

Something more than a lecture, but not the production of a Hard Core History. Chris is finding a niche in the history podcast world that fits his own style. I rather enjoy the deep dive on stories and subjects as he slows down to explore nuances

Great podcast

This is a must listen for anyone interested in history. Both informative, and incredibly entertaining.
