Whether it was invention or intervention, innovation or despair, UnCommon History speaks of women and immigrant people. It will unmask the characters of our past, introduce the culture of American Indians and tell true stories you never learned in school.

Customer Reviews

best ever

worth a subscription. This is fun to hear, historic americana and most unusual. My kids love this but so do I. Everyone should know about this. So many history podcasts are dry and poorly spoken - they are embarrassing to listen to, but not UnCommon History. This one is 5 minutes of well written, well spoken and fascinating history. Best yet - you will love this even if you are not a history buff.

Super. Subscribe you will be glad you did


I like that these are short and to the point.

Exceptional and informative

These podcasts are a perfect, informative and concise piece of attention-grabbing New Jersey history. I have listened to many of them and have since gone on to research some of them further because the subject matter had peaked my interest. Their brief story and “off the beaten path” subject matter make them all the more fascinating. The narrator has a wonderful tone and his enthusiasm about the material is apparent while he is speaking. As a teacher I find these stories ones our children should learn about, they are interesting and help everyone see why history is so exciting and important in all our lives. I am looking forward to listening to more in the future.
