Enjoyable and enlightening

I truly enjoy this podcast. It often covers events I had not heard or knew just in passing. Hearing testimonies from witnesses makes them more real, and at less than ten minutes, it is not burdensome to listen to.

My favorite podcast for 3 years running

My appreciation for this podcasts only grows over time. By bringing us eye witnesses and participants in world history events are humanized and brought to a very personal level for the listener. Events that are a 100 years old can seem within touching distance while participants in recent events often bring tears to my eyes. For all the tragic, emotional punch-in-the-gut episodes the are fun ones as well. At 9 minutes these are ideal "going to bed" podcasts, but they are far from boring.


Great for learning your history for sure!
