America is divided, and it always has been. We're going back to the moment when that split turned into war. This is Uncivil: Gimlet Media's new history podcast, hosted by journalists Jack Hitt and Chenjerai Kumanyika. We ransack the official version of the Civil War, and take on the history you grew up with. We bring you untold stories about covert operations, corruption, resistance, mutiny, counterfeiting, antebellum drones, and so much more. And we connect these forgotten struggles to the political battlefield we’re living on right now.

Customer Reviews

Toppling the BS Lost Cause narrative

Uncivil gives us a fact-based history from the beginning of the US to the present day, focused on the Civil War. Episode by episode Kuminyika outlines the determined agency of the African-American diaspora ignored and forgotten by American history textbooks. It examines how the legacy of the distorted stories America chooses to tell has resulted in what we are now. And it “ransacks history” for the truths ignored by other media. Solid fact-checking and compelling story telling. Uncivil is a solid “YES.”

Very moving

There’s just too much to put in one tiny review. I learned quite a bit while listening. The stories and history were very compelling. I appreciate all the research that went into making this. And on top of that, the music and the way everything was produced and mixed together was incredibly moving. It’s giving me teaching points to help my kids understand American history.
