An Attempt to Vindicate Bragg

As the title indicates, Bragg has been largely reviled by historians for a century and a half. Hess has taken the arduous ask of attempting to rehabilitate Bragg by spinning every possible excuse available. Historians who have denigrated Bragg are all plagiarists (according to Hess) who didn't do their own research. While Hess does present pro-Bragg sources, they do not match the number or status of his critics. But it is an interesting POV and worth reading/listening.

The narration by Yen is incredible!

Enough with the ridiculous accents

Could we stop with the ridiculous accents please? I assume most of us are adults and can comprehend a quote without the added antics.While the story is good I find the narrator distracting.
