Like listening in on a conversation between expert historians
This is a highly informative and intellectually stimulating podcast. The panelists are insanely knowledgeable about early American history. A lot of history podcasts “talk down” to their listeners, but the Juntocast is like listening in on expert historians from the next booth over in the pub.
I just found this today while driving and listened to four straight hours. I cannot wait to continue! The host and guests provide expert discussion without an obvious political slant.
