A sophisticated "hardcore history", perhaps? Excellent podcast.
Excellently Researched, thoroughly entertaining
Joey really brings the narratives out of the stories better than most history content available. The podcast on top of being erudite and well researched is thoroughly well produced with great audio quality, soundscapes and pacing.
A great start
I have just listened to the first podcast on Syria. Very helpful and forthright history.
