Engaging, informative, educational, entertaining, varied.
I stumbled upon this podcast while looking for episodes on brutalism and the space race back in November. Having studied modern history in school, and also having a interest in aircraft from the Cold War era, in addition to a love of Berlin I began to pick other episodes, and became well and truly hooked. From a critics perspective this podcast uses a lot of primary sourcing, which I find uniquely engaging. The different viewpoints aren’t always what you would expect and overall there is a focus on the human aspect of the era, which makes many anecdotes relatable to the listener so you are able to gain a level of understanding harder to achieve from history books (at least from my poorly read point of view) It has also significantly increased the pile of books I want/have bought but haven’t read yet. All in all, I’ve not listened or subscribed to many podcasts, but as of this year I am supporting this one as it has a large historical value that swells as more episodes are released, and as such I see this as somewhat more worthwhile than others for that reason alone. What keeps me interested is Ian’s engaging and erudite manner and delivery and as such I will be keeping up to date. The more people that do this the more this will develop! Keep up the good work!

If you are a CW aficionado there is lots, lots here for you. Best interviews were with Francis Gary Powers,...Read full review »

Ian Sanders introduces his listeners to a wide array of people and stories from the history of Cold War: Life in Berlin on both sides of the wall, a man who owns a Soviet Submarine, the Korean War in Britain, so much fun to listen to.
