Easy and informed listen
Really enjoyed this podcast. If you're looking for an argumentative discussion, this isn't for you. It's a nice listen, covering the basics and adding in the important details! As an avid history fan, especially of this era in American history, I was very glad to stumble on it. They add fun nerdy facts too, which I love, and adhere to always spelling grey the old fashioned way. Nice touch!
A great overview from the perspective of biography. This fills a niche very nicely. Good for neophytes and long time fans.
