Customer Reviews

Rev left fan

Just listened to your Vietnam episode with Brett. Anxiously looking forward to my commute so I can listen to more. Keep up the good work.

Good conversations

The host has thoughtful conversations with leftist writers and others on diverse topics. Give it a listen.

Completely unique

I've been listening almost since the beginning, and Nostalgia Trap has grown into an old favorite. There's nothing like it: conversations with historians (usually) and their lives on the left that touch on every aspect of the contemporary United States and the world, to the point they'd be interesting to any listener. And for those who are in academia, David has a running emphasis on career paths and the current collapse of humanities employment that he and many of his guests have faced.
