“I must admit that as a professional researcher I tend to be skeptical of history lessons from overtly religious sources due to the natural tendency towards bias. This podcast reminds me to always challenge my own prejudice. The author uses his understanding of Islam to provide depth and context, without sacrificing impartiality or accuracy.
The first episodes I listened to were about Yemen and I was very surprised at the clarity of the episodes as the author touched on the most compelling elements of each without getting too far tangled in the complex environments.
This is well produced, extremely well researched and delivered with a professional voice. He tells the story with a light tone, with digressions into humorous and interesting angles that provide depth and context.
I don’t know what else to say. Good for students and teachers, good for Muslims and non-Muslims, good for history enthusiasts, great for parents, and even good for professional researchers. Do yourself a favor and listen to an episode.”
