Description

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

The SJW Guide to the Civil War

Are you a trendy, progressive-minded millennial who knows very little about the American Civil War? Do you want to moderately improve your understanding of it WITHOUT skimming Wikipedia? THIS is the podcast for YOU!
PRO: It may be helpful in understanding and dismantling prominent Lost Cause narratives.
CON: If you're already well-acquainted with contemporary Civil War scholarship, the omissions/virtue-signalling from the hosts/guests can be a distraction.
I really tried to give this podcast a fair shake, but it just isn't my cup of tea. I can see its appeal to younger audiences seeking to opine on the parallels between the rise of the Confederacy and the current political climate in 140 characters or less. But some academics and history enthusiasts, myself included, may find it tough-going. Others may disagree. Give it a listen and decide for yourself.

Not the show I thought it would be

Focuses less on history and more on making people wrong and bragging about tearing people down on Twitter. Would be nice to hear stories that clear up commonly held misconceptions about the civil war; too bad this isn’t it.

Uncle Baby?

I’m sorry, I can’t take anything seriously that cites “Uncle Baby” as a source.
