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.

Fascinating history podcast

My teenager really enjoyed hearing about this historic episode which isn't typically covered in schools. His middle aged parents learned something more about what happened as well. It sparked an interesting family discussion about the parallels to football players kneeling and other protests today. Highly recommended.
