Description

The Cold War, Prohibition, the Gold Rush, the Space Race. Every part of your life -the words you speak, the ideas you share- can be traced to our history, but how well do you really know the stories that made America? We’ll take you to the events, the times and the people that shaped our nation. And we’ll show you how our history affected them, their families and affects you today. Hosted by Lindsay Graham (not the Senator). From Wondery, the network behind Tides Of History, Fall Of Rome and Dirty John.

Clever but not too clever disguised series to make Americans doubt our Greatness.

M. S. compared to 3rd world countries we look good, yea, but when compared to the rest of the modern world we look pathetic. do it once, try to take an objective look at america compared to almost any European country. your ignorance doesn't surprise me, being one of the least educated populous in the world, it's understandable that most Americans harbor delusions of grandeur. your patriotism looks to me like the self serving bias at its best.

Darth Aquarius Not faceius. We must be great. People are constantly risking life and limb by sneaking in, and are refusing to leave even though we don't want them. No body is sneaking into China, or Venezuela, or Iran, or North Korea, or Rwanda. I am an American who is proud to be black and Christian. I understand that although this great nation has made, and will continue to make, mistakes it always rise like a phoenix and will continue to guide the world.

I really enjoy this podcast I love how they act out people to put you into the mindset of average people of the time. A welcome change from other more dry history podcasts.

great storytelling and presentation. unfortunately the series is almost neurotic in its need to downplay any threat to the standard left leaning narrative surrounding the cold war.

Generally good; but lose the distracting sound effects. They add nothing yet alienate the discerning listener.

I can't wait to see what you all cover next. It was a more intimate look at Prohibition. Can we look forward to a Civil Rights Movement series?

Excellent story telling. Very immersive and informative. I appreciate the deep dive into the nuances and intricate cultural and political impacts and happenings of the cold war era. However, I can confirm that it is a bit left leaning by parroting the debunked narrative that the democrats were the champions of cold war poltics and American civil rights. But because this is not the focus, it does not distract from the overarching story and lesson. Besides that, I really love this content and look forward to them exploring other historical periods. I will definitely recommend to my friends.

Jacob I really appreciate your comment regarding the 'left leaning parroting' of leftists as "champions of Cold War politics and American Civil Rights". I must admit that I was a bit sceptical regarding that particular issue. It actually has a name "Revisionist History". When I first started college in 1967 my plan was to focus on journalism. My two loves have always been English Literature and History, American and European. I ended up as a Critical Care RN after discovering the ugly bias that was beginning to raise it's in both the media and in the classroom. I am not going to bail out because I do enjoy the format/presentation; but I will continue my search for sources that I can introduce my grandson to; sources he can trust for the truth, warts and all. .
