Great story teller
Found the podcast on a history podcast facebook page. I really enjoy his story telling style. It's dynamic with lots of information and a good "podcast voice" He uses lots of different sources but keeps the focus on the people in the history. The politics is more overt in the interviews but they are well done and even when I don't agree with the point of view they are interesting. I am looking forward to what the host tackles next.
Just finished the series on The Spanish Civil War, and found it chock full of details and extremely well put together. Can't wait to dive into the rest. Thanks!
Excellent history pod
Found this pod as a recommendation from another podcaster. It is a great view on many events of the past that I knew little about. The Spanish Civil War episodes are great and now we are delving into the Russian Revolution. Thanks for the hard work, looking forward to more in the future.
