Jeez, who does your research? You say Ben Franklin’s pen name was Silence Dogwood? It’s Silence DOGOOD. Fail.

Slaves digging a foundation is brutal work? Liberals think baristas Making coffee is hard work.and yes slaves single handily built the White House? Very shallow story time to delete this podcast

The more I listen the more I like it. I like the style and the way it’s put together. Makes me feel I’m right there. Good job.

The production on these episodes is fantastic! I really like the way it’s written, puts you right in the middle of the story, and does a great job of illustrating different perspectives of those that were there. Seems like a lot of research goes into every episode. Lindsey Graham’s narration is...Read full review »

As an aspiring history buff as well as someone who travels long distances for work, I find this podcast great for absorbing as much information as I can while on the road. The topics are interesting and Graham does a great job avoiding political partialities, which is difficult when dealing with...Read full review »

Well researched, entertaining, and educational. I’m enjoying all the episodes. Any plans to include a show about the Worldcom scandal?

Thanks for Season 68 on the Pinkerton Detective Agency. I didn’t know much of the history and what Allan Pinkerton was like. Nothing has changed in over 150 years. He sounds just like the 45th from New York, especially with the branding and loyalty required of his underlings. The “official line”...Read full review »

Best history podcast in the world, I wish I could give it more stars. It is unbiased and tells what really happened in a way that is hard to find in this age of political propaganda

Honestly this is a great podcast I learned a lot but I don’t think “spongebobbyhil589”really understands this,honestly why so negative?you sound like you didn’t actually listen to this podcast.

I love this show. It got me into podcasts in the first place. It’s provides an in depth analysis of events that make up American history. Many people say there are too many ads, but it’s really not much. I would advise this to anyone.

My academic background is PolySci, History, and Library and Information Science. There is no better source I’ve found for succinct, accurate, entertaining and informative storytelling of America’s important periods and personalities.
Gabe Coker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/24
A wonderful show. I just wanted to point out one error concerning Saint John Paul 2. John Paul 2 died on April 2, 2005. You did get the canonization date right of 2014. But other than that I truly enjoy this show as I am a lover of history.
Celtic/Irish/Scottish fan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/24
I’m a naturalized American and I love this show. I’ve learned so much about American history from it. Lindsey does a great job explaining the intricacies of history, politics and conflict in such an approachable way. And I really like the dramatizations. They break the monotony of these generally...Read full review »

This is the best history podcast I have found for my daily drive
tan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/24
First off, I am a 46 year Public History Grad student with a family, so my drives to and from work are perfect opportunities to learn from and listen to this great resource. I like to study topics I feel aren’t necessarily on everyone’s radar, and I get a pang of excitement every time I hear...Read full review »

Absolutely great podcast. It’s quickly become my favorite. The detail and connections made between history and reflections of current society are unparalleled. Please do a season on James Buchanan and Dred Scott decision.
kip kiperson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/24
“Imagine you’re a this”, “imagine you’re a that…” It was really disturbing to listen to the episodes of this series. Way too much identification as a method of narrative”. After three episodes you’ve been a lucky gold finder, a chinese golddigger in a shop, a goverment worker, an indian stealing...Read full review »
MK1407 via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 04/26/24
Love this podcast and this series. Working so much I don’t have as much time to read as I’d like. But listening to these shows helps me learn so much. Hearing little known stores and unknown historic events is fascinating. Started off just listening to the subjects I was interested in the most...Read full review »

Addicted is another word I could use to describe my desire for this podcast. It helps me get through each work day and the in-depth history is wonderful!
Yanranicm85 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/24
Dummy downed, politically slanted, poor production often distracting. Far too many commercials.
SpongeBobbyHil589 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/24
I just finished the series on WW1. I really enjoyed it and learned much more about out history. Great job! Keep up the good work! I have added your podcasts to my library! DG
D Galloway via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/24
Did you think you learned about history in school? You probably only scratched the surface! These are some deep dives into very interesting topics! I always enjoy this show. It’s such great quality. The sound effects add a lot to the show and the levels are perfect with the levels of the host, so...Read full review »

High production value. Decently balanced. I was looking for a good history podcast that seemed more like a history class. Most of the ones I come across are either “weird history” or “history of headlines” type shows. While this doesn’t flow quite like a class curriculum, it’s easy enough to...Read full review »

Love listening to this podcast! I just really wish I could opt out of the ads that are for alcohol or the stuff you’re supposed to drink before drinking alcohol so you don’t “feel terrible.” I’m a recovering alcoholic and it’s just kinda yucky to me. 😕
kh5787 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/24
They add nothing to the podcast and often keep me from listening. Also, there’s an R in forward.
TildaJean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/24
Ive listened through darn near all the seasons and have enjoyed them all. Its a great way to get some behind the scenes looks at how history has been made. Stories are told in a way that you really can picture the moments and come away with some knowledge and maybe a change of heart on how you...Read full review »

Stories are presented in a very relatable format. Love the immersive feel of it. Somewhat reminiscent of time travel. Great production.

If you are looking for suggestions I would recommend looking into the Kensington Ruenstone.

This podcast is great. It captures the listener’s attention right away. Anyone from a child to the elderly will like this.
OISC!! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/24
I’m a history geek. And This podcast is great! If you also like sitting on your couch reading history books all day but you’re eyes are to tired to read all night than this is the podcast for you. 📚📕📗📘📙📖🤓
QwackamallZildjian13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/24
Great podcast. It’s like a spy novel only true to life. So very interesting to learn about real accounts of espionage throughout history. I hope there are more stories to come.
konakathy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/24
Listened to the reconstruction era. Y’all need to study history a lot more. Especially about the south. How did African Americans get here? It wasn’t the American people that brought them here. And you also need to look into how African American people were sold to traders buy there own people🤔....Read full review »

AHT is probably my favorite podcast. Def top 5. Thanks for all the great content Lindsay!
trich1313 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/24
I have learned details about pieces of history I don’t remember learning about in school. The podcasts interesting to listen to and seems to take great care in having accurate details.
mommom04 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/24
The Wondery team does a great job of taking both known and obscure historical events and breaking them into enjoyable bite size pieces. I would love to see them do a series on the Dust Bowl soon!
mjj-88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/24
This podcast started an almost year long kick of only listening to history podcasts. I’ve truly learned so much & expanded my knowledge on history I was already familiar with
NLS05 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/24
I am a 60+ black American. I knew a lot that I learned in school but your podcast episodes taught me some things I did not know. Especially about the sympathetic Quakers ofNew Garden North Carolina. North Carolina is my home state but I did not grow up there. I have family there.It’s interesting...Read full review »

Would be nice if historians started using BC/AD again. CE/BCE refer to the same event, even Neil DeGrasse Tyson admits this. 🙄
sclb71 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/24
Totally distracting
Nattyg113 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 02/26/24
If you want to listen to pro woke, anti American, liberal agenda pacifist’s, this is the podcast for you.
RockinRick8185 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/24
Best thing I’ve ever followed. Engaging interesting and deeply informative. I have been particularly struck by the objective and evenhanded recounting of our very checkered American history. Finding those very few criticisms of the show as being biased, or woke, to be quite amusing. Idiots.
YrPops1957 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/24
You should do the war of 1812
Teddy Baer 2000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/24
Bad
Really cringey and badly written. Also woke
TampabucsFSU via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/24
Great archive of relevant and interesting historical events. Amazing how often history repeats itself.
OH-RAM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/24
Me and my dad listen to this together and we love it. I’m fifteen and I literally eat sleep and breathe this podcast. Lindsey Graham is a seriously talented storyteller. Keep it up man!!
sarahkat116 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/24
I loved this podcast in the beginning, I felt for the most part it was an unbiased retelling of history aside from the guest interviews at the end of each season, but as the season progress I’m finding the narrative is starting lean heavily to one side.
USAmericanHistoryBuff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/24
Look Lindsey Graham is great and his content is probably the best out there BUT I was disappointed on something he got wrong about Reagan. He made Reagan sound like a hero for changing his ideologies like he was a truly deep philosopher but he wasn’t. He was flipped and manipulated into his later...Read full review »
