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.

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

Thoroughly enjoyed this series

Very informative and enjoyable! I learnt a great deal about the world in a relatively short time. Great for short commutes to work.

A must listen

A highly informative series of things that are not taught in mainstream education that many will have missed or never known about. Well read with information from those that saw it with their own eyes. I was amazed that there were some things that people did and got away with. A great series for all ages that I would very much recommend getting.

Excellent!

This is a great collection, wonderfully narrated. I sure hope there's more where this came from!
