Really funny- loved every episode and every performance. Dark, irreverent and hilariously dirty. Not for kids! Use headphones if they’re around...More, please!

Excellent but better post-production needed

I've found this to be really comprehensive and detailed. I'm Australian but love history and wanted a more nuanced understanding of this period of American history and have not been disappointed. Gallagher is incredibly knowledgable and his delivery is animated and engaged. My only issue is the lack of really good post-production on sound quality. It's recorded live and so you can hear every turn of the lecture pages, the brushing of his clothes on the microphone ( I suspect it's a lapel mic) and the volume isn't consistent. It also means you can hear every swallow, cough, throat clear and every time he drinks water - I know this might sound overly picky, but if you are someone who finds mouth noises off-putting then this is very distracting. I couldn't listen to it on headphones, the noises were just too much. These could have been dealt with during the post-production and editing process.
