Great if you can ignore the production

Good topics, but it's hard to assess the writing, structure and conclusions when the special effects/music are set so loud they obscure the words. Not for people with any kind of auditory issues.

Good but irritating

This is a good story, but the sound effects, the screeching metal sounds are annoying and unnecessary.

Takes history and makes it personal

This takes history that you may or may not know about and puts it on a personal level, interviewing people who actually lived it. The only compliant I have is the sound design. On some of the episodes, I REALLY hated the sound effects that were super loud. RIP headphone users.

Great series

I've really enjoyed listening to this series. The events highlighted range from famous to obscure and each is illuminating in its own way about the state of the current world.

Don't waste your time

Don't waste your time unless you like to hear short stories from a very leftist perspective.

Excellent walk through the past still affecting us

#Clever I went it with a grain of salt thinking it might be dull, but I really enjoyed this! I knew some basics about some of the events, but in each 30 min segment I learned a lot of detail, and it was INTERESTING... wish my high school career was like that...#tagsgiving" and "#sweepstakes

A professional job. Great to listen to.

It’s great listening. Very professionally and skillfully put together. The use of sound and different narration and samples is great at feeding the imagination and helps immerse you in the story of each episode. Great work. Highly recommend it.
