Much better than other reviews make it out to be
I think many people in the bad reviews have far too big expectations for this podcast. To me, it appears to function as an introduction to a wide variety of topics and stories you might have never heard of and not necessarily a deep dive where many tough subjects are brought up. I found this pod originally looking for more knowledge of my own cultural history as an American whose parents came to the US from the UK 30 years ago and I have not been disappointed!

A wide variety of historical events are discussed. Interesting interviews from historians are succinct and well managed by the host.

Covering a wide variety of topics it is surprising how often the same motivations, mistrust and human emotions underlie critical decisions. These podcasts are particularly good at presenting the unfashionable, pre-modern history making them interesting.

One of the best and certainly the most professional podcast out there. Interesting topics with the odd gem to be found. Highly recommend
