me o honestly the way u word that. who wouldnt want that. but in honest, why is their unearthed series the fan favorite. possibly because it is pure history with no bias. literally exposing what we seek and crave about the past. this is what important, measured and noted by history lovers. the hosts are weak

Ridiculous. You spend five minutes revealing almost nothing and always say "It's a bit fuzzy" basically saying you really don't know shit except rumor. Five minutes even on Wikipedia would be far more beneficial

The name of the podcast is literally "stuff you missed in history class", and considering history class doesn't cover the female (or black or Native American ect...) experience, it should be no surprise that the topics are centered around those things. As they should be.
