I have listened to many podcasts during my daily walks. But 1865 is by far the best one ever! I am so looking forward to Season 2. Lindsay Graham is very talented!

I love the mix of historical fact and conjecture in this drama. It makes me want to read more about this part of history. The actors really bring the characters to life. I look forward to the second season.

Not only is 1865 super informative and historically accurate, it’s incredibly acted and produced! I hope they never stop making it.

I’ve never been into radio dramas and listened to to the first episode based on a recommendation from another podcast. I was hooked immediately. Told my parents to listen and they were obsessed too. THRILLED there’s another season!! And Stanton is AMAZING!!! Thank you for this amazing content!!

So really such a clean and authentic podcast is not common to find. Plus a great story that took tons of research makes it really a unique experience to listen to all of season one, including the words of the actors and producers. If you like the Habitat, The End of the World or similar podcasts,...Read full review »

I think this is the best audio drama I have ever experienced. The writing, acting, sound effects And timing put me right there, creating an in person encounter with these vital events of history. At 74, I was weened on radio dramas like Gunsmoke, Dragnet and other high quality dramas that my...Read full review »

Good production, great acting.

American History Tellers, American Scandal , Wicked Elections - and now this. His name is synonymous with podcasting excellence. Who needs television? And PS - the actor who plays Stanton is remarkable.
PW from GR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/21
Every 15 minutes the play is interrupted by a loud ad. I’m out.

I also forgot to add this thought to my review that I had just submitted -- I learned of Lucy Lambert Hale (daughter of US Senator John Parker Hale of NH). In some ways, there appeared to me a lot of parallels between some of the leaders in Washington DC and her, as between former President...Read full review »

Could not make it through the first 15 min which are about 8 min of advertisements

Too bad. Great job. But why do episode on your opinions. Had my support then drove me away at the end.
why????almost great via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/21
I am a huge history buff and this podcast is astounding. It blew me away not only for the acting but for the way it’s been written and the music! The music is a reminder at times of the seriousness of what is happening in that scene and that possible ramifications of what will eventually happen...Read full review »

Excellent until you guys just couldn’t leave out your true colors .You should have left out your current political comparisons, what a waste of your talents and showing no respect for your listeners. . This had been one of the best podcast I have ever listened too! I am glad I didn't send...Read full review »

This is the first podcast I recommend to people.
Aggiejamz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/21
Sucked me in from the get go, quick listens, entertains and well written. A couple changes make this a perfect story. I wish they would of used more voice actors or altered their accents more between characters. It can get confusing who is who when you rely on voice only to determine who is...Read full review »

Really, really well done.
Charles Sl_ck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/21
What a well done podcast. The story is so interesting and so much more in depth than we were taught in school.
Fuhdjcxhvxh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/21
The podcast is well-written and acted but overproduced. The acting is awesome but the producers felt a mind boggling need to punctuate perfectly good scenes with overbearing musical interludes more suited to low-rent soap opera than historical fiction. Skip the “behind the scenes.” The...Read full review »

I thought I had a bad belt while driving when listening to episodes.
K8L via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/21
This podcast is extremely well done. You get a feel that you are actually right there in the room where things are happening.
Bigtone28 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/21
This is the best podcast I’ve ever had the privilege to listen to. The voice actors were first rate, and the dialogue was exceptional. I loved it! I hope there is more to come. Maybe 1866??
Mike Ramona via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/20
I’m so glad I stumbled across this podcast. It was so well written, produced and performed. The voices and music were also oddly soothing, so thank you for a calming, yet incredibly entertaining, bedtime story. I was so excited when I thought I heard William Jackson Harper and then checked the...Read full review »

This is a MUST for any history nerds. It is a great, engaging dramatization. It strikes just the right note of history exposition and character development.
Kanye__West via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/20
This podcast was enjoyable until they started trying to change history by telling lies to make the Democrats look like the good guys. If you know your history, that’s far from the truth.

Bravo Wondery!
Crystalofboston via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/20
This podcast is an immersive experience unlike any other. Every episode takes you back to 1865 and all the fascinating things that were happening in America. It is great for those who are not familiar with the events of this time period as well those who are. Most Amateur history buffs will very...Read full review »

A first rate show with great production values. A fine historical tale with a superb cast.

Seriously interesting, well produced, educational, amazing, ugggh! I guess I have to listen to it all over again.

First Kamala Harris is NOT BLACK, she is Hindu Indian (mother) and raised as such, Father is Jamaican, and they are not Black, just ask one and they’ll set you straight, they are West Indies. Stop lying Wondery!!!!
(Walter55) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/20
Started off really enjoying this drama, but I immediately noticed the bias with the modern day democratic spin deliberately put into the story! And would also really love fact checks, unbiased, of course on these stories! I gave it the benefit of the doubt and continued to listen because I do...Read full review »

This is unequivocally, the best podcast available for listeners that seek historical fiction, audio dramas, and anything in between. Lindsay Graham and crew do a masterful job. The production value is amazing. This is the type of show that you binge, and then save to listen to again and again. I...Read full review »

This was an amazingly well done podcast. Already sent it to my dad and will definitely send to others.

Masterpiece
Dearth grub via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/20
This is a nicely done podcast but unfortunately they leave things out and paint the south as the only bad people but truthfully both sides had slaves and there was simply more the the history that people refuse to wanna except
Rocktruck82 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/20
I have never gotten into history at school but ohhhh!!!! How I wished it was this fascinating then as it is in this podcast! I loved it! And wanting more! I can’t believe I love history told this way. I have shared this podcast with my friend and family to gather more audiences for it.
axj0134 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/20
The entire series is tremendously compelling, every detail and character do a great job of drawing the listener in.
JJM3354 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/20
The acting, music, sound design, producing, story telling, editing, is so spot on, it’s incredibly entertaining and educational, I would give this 10 stars if I could.
Events United via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/20
This is one of the best history lessons I’ve ever had. As a history nerd, I knew almost nothing about the details and scandal of this period and I’m now obsessed.
Allison_Pons via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/20
If you like history, Lincoln, the civil war, then you have to try this. I found out lots of stuff that I didn't know about the post assassination time. Bonus--the good place fans will hear a familiar voice.Read full review »

This is a good podcast. I don’t love it, but it’s pretty good. Makes me laugh at the fact that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are running for office. Lol TRUMP 2020 KEEP AMERICA GREAT!!!!!!

Please turn this into a TV miniseries!

Very well done on all levels!
Billings88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/12/20
Well done, but lost me when President Johnson uttered the words ‘bogus news’. Yeah we get it - he’s Trump. Please stick with real history. It’s so much more interesting. People just want an escape from the daily political bickering.
Whitskiii via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/20
Can’t remember another podcast that completely enraptured me from the first 5 min. of the first episode through to the end. Amazing. This NEEDS to be a TV show.
