Glad to see this available on Audible.

This production is the only reason I HAD a podcast app on my phone.

Interesting insight on auto-tune

I enjoyed the history of auto-tune usage in the music industry and how the technology came to be.

Annoyingly beat around the bush too much

The topics are okay but the duo’s delivery is terrible. They go off tangent a lot and take too many breaks. You will start an episode and somewhere in the middle realize you do not know what the topic was about in the first place because they have discussed so many different things in that single episode that was irrelevant to the topic.

Always enjoy the podcast. I even listened to the older episodes where Josh has a different voice.

Great topic, handled poorly

Important history, but handled in a tone-deaf way. The narrators speak in cheerful, offhand conversation about how "these people" (former slaves) needed to be "re-integrated into society." By that, the narrators mean that "the men because I think they were mostly men" who had been slaves needed employment at livable wages. While I would have liked to have learned about the challenges faced by Black Americans immediately following the Civil War, the governmental strategies, and the long-term ramifications, I was too turned off by the constant, chipper referrals to Black post Civil War Americans as "these people" while whites became "Northern men," "Southern men," or "citizens" with an occasional nod to the-women-and-children. I never finished the podcast, so I apologize if the latter part was dramatically different in tone.

The narrators drew illogical distinctions, such as their idea that Northern businesses were in favor of establishing a new form of de-facto slavery, while "the citizens" of the North generally were not. But... who exactly were Northern businessmen if not citizens? And was there any dissent or was this attitude unanimous?

The narrators admit that they got a great deal of their information from one website. I wish they had done more research and treated the subject with more respect. As is, it sounded a bit like a book report given by students who have no real interest in the subject.

Meandering but technically informative

I was really looking forward to learning what I needed to know, as is the name of the podcast, but they spent too much time riffing on unrelated media. I liked the Beatles documentary but I'm clicking this for something else. Some pretty loose research, by their admission, in several parts. The audio quality is nice but I'm here for the information, which they did eventually get to, but not the personality.
