Interesting, makes me sad though that so many innocent Japanese-Americans and Japanese-Australians paid a terrible price, while he was living like a monk.

The Hemingway episode, while being informative, was not entirely accurate. Their commentary on his drinking and it benefitting his writing is simply not true.

This podcast is way too repetitive. I was planning on listening to it on a long road trip but I couldn't get past the beginning of the 2nd episode because of all the repetitiveness and the announcements of the other podcasts. It tried my patience too much, and the way it was narrated was boring also.

When was this Podcast recorded? The line "a storm of the magnitude of Katrina is unlikely to form anytime soon" I hope that this was recorded before a category 5 made landfall in October of 2018.

The grammatically correct way to say someone had killed themselves by hanging is "hanged" not "hung". Dear lord that bugged me.

i didn't like that there were 4 different presenters. they each read like one sentence and went around the table over and over again. they should have broken it up into 4 big parts to avoid switching too much
