I feel sad about it, because this always used to be a great podcast with fun and interesting content, well researched and presented. But it is now so overstuffed with advertising that I can just no longer tolerate it while walking or cycling. I had to delete it.

This is a good podcast to spark interests in various subjects! Every time I finish a series I’m inspired to go check out the literature recommended in the episode and to go into further research on the subject in question. As a fellow practitioner, the crazy and exciting stories inspire my...Read full review »

i LOVE this podcast, it is everything i wished i had in school. the way Sebastian breaks down/relates/compares events and times...it creates this awesome "panoramic view" of the ages/times/histories. if you want some awesome "food for thought" by all means, this podcast will turn...Read full review »

Combines high level research with a great balance of humour, intrigue and energy. I have a lot more to get through. Can’t wait!

Diverse subjects pick one you’re interested in and you’ll learn a lot

I always look forward to getting this in my feed. Very well thought out, organized, and entertaining. It’s clear a lot of work goes into this show.

In the Gilgamesh episode you accuse people of racism because an Iraqi didn’t get full credit for the Gilgamesh discovery. You didn’t research this, you just said it. Your podcast is not a racism and morals podcast so it was unnecessary to include. But since you did it should be accurate. ...Read full review »

Great research work and perfect narration.
alifzS via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/21/21
Sebastian shows us a unique way to explore history by asking questions and playing around with allegory. Finally some one who does not claim to know it all but brings curiosity to the past to better understand ourselves and the future. Super clever, fun, light hearted, deeply researched, magical,...Read full review »

This is easily my favorite podcast. Sebastian presents all facets of a historical topic and tells history as a story-what’s real, what’s embellished and what’s forgotten. I appreciate the listed sources, the art that accompanies the podcast, and Sebastian’s voice. And the music is awesome too.

The Robert Johnson story is just silly, especially siting naturally occurring ants and snakes at a cemetery. A real stretch. Nevertheless the series is enjoyable.
TildaJean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/21
Not only does Sebastian deliver a great synopsis of his topic for the week, he does it in an entertaining way that keeps me interested and entertained! I’ve followed him from the start! And I’ve enjoyed hearing about his family and some of his life in the process. I Highly Recommend his podcast!...Read full review »

I enjoy the reporting and skepticism of fantastical legends. *WARNING* If you listen to this with headphones or earbuds as I do, turn your volume down after the prefacing first part of the show. The saxophone in the theme song will burst your eardrums.

This is a wonderful podcast that I can’t recommend enough (trust me, my friends are bored of hearing about it). Sebastian’s style as a host is enjoying and engaging. He doesn’t speak at you or down to you, be guides you easily through some very interesting and confusing parts of history. The...Read full review »

I really like Sebastian’s presentation style. He is always looking at a diverse range of topics from different points of view. I like that he addresses common misconceptions in a way that makes people feel comfortable learning new things or changing their opinions about things they may have...Read full review »

Love his style and delivery. Enjoyable topics
Ld11122 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/21
Love the show - hate the opening theme music. It’s abrupt, jarring, and just plain terrible. I rush to skip over it, and wish it was at the beginning of the episode, so it was easier to avoid
harlowe jane via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/18/21
Started listening after hearing about it on Adam carolla. Love this series! Thanks!

Best history show there is

Sebastian Major is an engaging speaker who breaks down complex topics into bite sized manageable pieces all while entertaining the listener. Thank you Sebastian!
cannucker via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/01/21
Meh
I tried several episodes. The podcaster tries to emulate Dan Carlin and fails. It’s not a bad podcast but he crams a good 20 minutes into and hour long podcast. Typically very droning and dragging along
shawnsnipe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/28/21
I just gotta say, I am so glad that you stuck it out Sebastian. I knew you could do it! Keep up the awesome work!
Wu-Banga #1 J.J. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/28/21
The name of the podcast threw me off at first. It made me think that the show was about changing actual history into some kind of conspiracy story cover up. But after listening to just one show it was clear how wrong I was! Sebastian does a fabulous job at busting historical myths by flushing...Read full review »
JAFmama16 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/21
Sebastian regurgitates Wikipedia pages and tells his own version of history based on his Canadian Bias with little to know sources and quotes. At least his podcasts are short, and yes they’re entertaining, but it couldn’t be classified as “history” as he continuously and erroneously interprets...Read full review »

About the guy who said if he hears “Canada” one more time he’ll blow his head off… Sebastian, it seems to me if you say “Canada” one more time then that problem will solve itself..

Should do an episode on Dracula
Cody A. Reynolds via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/21
Great podcast. Learned a lot. Would prefer if we lost the extended music bumpers.
GGibson23 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/21
The subjects and contents of these podcasts are great, making it one of my go to choices. Unfortunately, there are annoyingly loud music breaks through most of them - kind of like how commercials are a bit louder than the show, but these music breaks are in super overdrive and actually scare my...Read full review »

Have been absolutely burning through these episodes since finding it. Makes work bearable
Tyler Sieber via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/21
I like the stories and in general some of them may be my only learning and interest on that subject. I can enjoy them in the moment and move on. However the later episodes have almost cartoonish narration and so much endless rambling off topic in the opening I find I skip ahead 6-8 minutes just...Read full review »

Ever since I found this podcast it’s what I play every long drive
Tariqqq3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/25/21
I put this on whenever I’m going to be in the car with the kids (aged 6 and 10) and now they ask for it by name. They not only learn a ton of history, they learn to LOVE history. I love this show.

See title. Your welcome potential listener. Enjoy.
nine gracias via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/15/21
•Episode: “Who won the War Of 1812 (Part 1)” in which the first 22 minutes may be scrubbed through to reach the start of the interesting bits. You have been warned. •Episode: “Who won the War Of 1812 (Part 2)” in which the host confuses “disinterest” with “lack of interest”.

Just what I’ve been looking for. No frills, different takes, straight to business. No annoying productions or personalities.

Consistent quality on a wide range of fringe topics. Refreshingly straight shooting with lots of cited sources. The candor and the music can be a bit hammy but it’s all part of the charm
theodore sturgon via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/31/21
I found this podcast, and had to go back to #1 to start the series at the beginning. I find it amazing how much research must go into each episode to make such succinct arguments. Well done!
RichColvin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/21
This podcast is one of my absolute favorites! I can't even say what place it has in my ranking list, because I have none since it's stupid. Each and every podcast is very special in one way or another, each podcast has it's own schtick. This one is about historical myths and Sebastian...Read full review »

If you are going through Dan Carlin withdrawal, this more then fills the void
AuggieDoggy87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/21
Poor mans Dan Carlin. Copies his style, cadence, intro but much much less compelling story teller.
w22211 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/21
Wanted to love it, but kept losing my place because it is so boring. Not sure if it’s the delivery or i go chowed to share. Don’t bother.

I LOVE these podcast’s and I could watch the same one over and over and over and over again about 100 times. I feel like every episode is a whole lot to take in but in a good way! My favourite’s so far are the Arthur one and Fountain of youth. Also you have not posted in a long time and I would...Read full review »
