My brother, Reggie, introduced me to your podcast. He wrote the review below (unsure of the review order) on 4/18/22. It seems as if you and a team put an enormous amount of work into each segment. So, like brother, like sister… Thank you for a fascinating podcast that interestingly brings us on...Read full review »

Thanks Liz for producing this podcast. I’m a big fan of history and your podcast is giving me a different perspective on understanding America and our world. I learned about your podcast listening to NPR I believe the Experiment Podcast. Keep up the great work.

Very , very biased.

It’s interesting and informative and explained by scholars who provide accurate information.

I am an archivist and historian and I have to say that this podcast is top notch. I’m very impressed with the subjects presented and the amount of scholarship that shines through in each episode. Keep up the great work!

But it got kinda political. I don’t care about either side I just like history. So you are getting two stars. That’s why.

I really love this podcast. It's very informative Liz Covart has no fear of detailed information, a valuable quality in a historian. I find this podcast informative and a very pleasant to boot.Read full review »

There are so many episodes; so much content. I was excited when I ran across this show. I’ve tried a handful of times now to listen to randomly chosen episodes. Without fail my eyes have glazed over in boredom within ten minutes. I quickly lose interest. The dry, textbook delivery is killing me....Read full review »

Started out as a good history show. Interesting interviews with actual historians. Enter the Omohundro Institute. Got quite glitzy and more concerned with production than content. If it really now takes you an hour of labor to produce one minute of content for an interview show, you are: a) doing...Read full review »

The Juneteenth episode was so informative. Every time she comes, she delivers knowledge.
TMT-DC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/21
I keep coming back to this show “because” of your delivery of the excellent content. So unique, not the “podcast host” voice you hear on so many other shows. The enthusiasm for the subject matter and the enthusiasm for sharing the subject matter shine through. My favorite episodes were about...Read full review »

I am a history teacher & so I am always looking for new resources for teaching history. This is a great podcast that has great guests & really is mindful of getting into the details. There are a lot of negative comments/ reviews about this podcast & the voice of the host or that it’s...Read full review »

One of my favorite podcasts in any genre until i hear "Gender, Race, & the First Vaccine" in a little squeaky voice and now i must delete you from my library. History is simply facts that already happened. Keep the identity politics out of it. Can't you see it ruins everything.Read full review »
John-jon Mcgoo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/21
I would give five stars to content and guests who nearly always deliver, but only two to Liz Covart. One would think the countless comments on her awkward delivery would prompt her (or her producers) to retool, but year after year her excellent show is hampered by her robotic presentation...Read full review »

This show was always boring but did have some good episodes. But since the death of George Floyd every episode became unlistenable liberal garbage. Also the fake talk in the interviews is weird. Why not have real conversations.
Richard Muttonwood via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/21
I tuned in to learn some good, and some bad, early American history I was greeted with a few dozen professors of history giving their liberal talking points on episode 300 of how racist America is Thanks for that No wonder college students are as unproductive and self hating as they are
hillaryisaman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/21
If you want to listen to real history don’t waste your time with this podcast. It is clearly left wing propaganda that unapologetically presents history through the lens of critical race theory. I am perplexed by it’s 4.5 star rating.
Cazador725 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/21
I loved your podcast. Until the political diatribe in your most recent. The misrepresentation of Frederick Douglas and other great American leaders with a woke comparison cheapens the great efforts of your forum.
CMSGT-AF via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/21
My family and I enjoy this podcast very much! Interesting Early American history is presented with great enthusiasm and does not sound stuffy or dull. There is a good variety of subjects so there is an episode for everyone! Keep up the great work

I was going to wait until tomorrow but decided to tell you today that I love the podcast
rick cvbhgf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/21
Informative however nearly all shows consist of topics on slavery and less of what I was hoping for. The title Ben Franklins World is inappropriate for the topics covered.
bravowhiskey1776 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/21
I decided I could not listen to the narrator any longer. If she could take it down a notch.
Pppplleeaassee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/21
Liz Covart provides very informative and well produced podcasts that are sure to be a favorite for any history buffs! Her interview style makes you relax and feel right at home while listening and brings out the best in her knowledgeable and entertaining guests. 5 stars from me!
Stinger828 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/21
There are podcasts and then there’s BFW. LC has created a model that every historical podcaster should pay close attention too. It’s a who’s who of movers and shakers in the field combined with Liz’s stellar format. Plus she doesn’t drop the ball with wonky production values. A+ content. Pay attn...Read full review »

I’d enjoy it more if Dr Covart spoke slower, enunciated her words and stop swallowing final syllables .
wefirst via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/21
But as noted by others, the host’s tendency to attempt to add, what?-drama, phony gravitas ??? via irritating pauses peppered throughout a single sentence is maddening. It almost felt (in episode 292) as though she decided to double down on it in response to that feedback. Listen to how your...Read full review »

Excellent podcast. I love the information put forth in he podcast. Very interesting and on subjects tat capture the imagination. My only critique wold be that sometimes it feels as if she is loading up for the next question and not really listening to hat her interview subject is saying....Read full review »

Just what I needed to pass the time this year! Such a great podcast- liking it more and more every episode
A Smoen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/21
I can’t stand fake talk. Just talk normal. That MSM speak has to go. Do not listen in car you will crash with how boring this podcast is.
CensorshipSucks123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/30/20
I really enjoy the content and friendly, calm delivery. Liz is delightful and the guests bring great insight. I’d love more frequent episodes. Surprised by some of the more critical reviews that have been posted.
ineedanap! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/20
The podcast is truly a joy to listen to, and even more now that Liz has made a very important, needed, and genuine move to include Indigenous history within the scope of the pod. I’m very happy to have been a listener for years and to see the trajectory this podcast has taken. Thanks, Liz!
ChakMe'ex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/20
Some good podcasts here mixed in with a disproportionate emphasis on slavery, gender, and social justice centric topics. After awhile it gets old and a little preachy with its general negative perspective on our nation’s early history.
mica1960 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/20
Just listened to the Acadian diaspora. As I have done a lot of family genealogy and study, I have come to the conclusion that the host and author that was interviewed were very unknowing of the major cause as to why the Acadians were evicted, the numerous deaths in the slave ships due to disease...Read full review »

Great insight into history from a multitude of varying perspectives. Most of the dialogue is in conversational mode and easy to understand. Occasionally there’s a presenter who I can tell is reading text. It’s not conversational and it’s a little hard to keep up with while doing another activity...Read full review »
joe14250 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/20
I love the show. I’ve listened to about 90% of it. It’s one of the best history podcasts I’ve ever listened to. My only issue is that in some of the episodes Liz is incredibly loud. I mean extremely loud. Idk. It could be an audio issue but it’s like that on all my audio devices. And I have...Read full review »
Clyles89 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
I was really enjoying this podcast, until the episode when she interviewed an older person. She sounds annoyed and she’s, not pleasant to the guest. You can hear it in her voice. It was very disappointing as I was enjoying this podcast. I’m shocked at how she spoke to this guest!
tikigirl12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/20
Love the show!

Would love to hear an episode of ‘The Battle of Fallen Timbers.”
Nawlins19 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/20
Interesting and informative right up to the point where Ms Rosenthal began speaking of her research as a means to forward discussions of reparations. She lost all intellectual credibility at that point. Understanding our history is paramount to preventing a repeat of it. However, the past should...Read full review »

The worst kind of pretentious, leftist academic claptrap.
BostonBored via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/20
I love the content of this podcast. I listen everyday while on a walk.
MelodyofCooking via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/20
The host needs to realize that she doesn’t know more than the guests. Also, the podcast is good when it sticks to major events and other similar aspects of our nation’s founding. It tends to get annoying with all the SJW topics, like slavery and gender issues, which seem to make up a majority of...Read full review »

Always been interested in early American history, particularly the 7 years war period and the revolution. I’ve only just discovered this podcast and love it. Working my through the back catalogue. Keep up the great work. Thank you.
Rory boy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/22/20
The content is rich. The interview format makes it accessible. Liz is fabulously nerdy. Great find.
Wilhomenah via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/20
Host does a wonderful job selecting guests and keeping the conversation on track. I LOVE to listen while washing dishes or making dinner. This podcast and a glass of wine make doing household chores a pleasure.
candygatl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/18/20
Liz has stepped up her game a lot since the beginning but it still gets a bit boring and rehearsed. Wish it could combine the more interesting topics from earlier episodes with Liz’s more recent polished style.
