FANTASTIC AND ENTRALLING!
These podcasts never let me down! I may have heard or read some of the tales before while others are brand new to me. Even with ones I think I know well, I am blown away by the depth of the research evident in the episodes as they teach me the story many times from the side of the oppressed and not the side of the oppressor! This is fantastic and fascinating for me! * I Must Add* Some make nasty comments about the accent of the speaker on the episodes.... Not everyone sounds the very same in this life- nor should they. You are picking apart the delivery on something that the speaker cannot really ever "fix" to your satisfaction. I say this because you are calling a diamond crappy simply because you resent the way it was delivered. That is a reflection only on you. If anyone listens long enough and in a quiet place if needed- they can pause and rewind if they are so baffled. They can also learn the cadence of this speaker so that each time they understand his accent with more and more ease. It really is as simple as you not being so demanding and you investing in your education more than your comfort or personal preference. Not all worthy messages will ever ever ever be delivered 100% to your liking, and many very truly worthy messages never will be delivered to your liking if you are not ready to hear them. As far as the complaints where this podcaster being slammed for needing to earn a living - he is still giving away a few new episodes a year for free. He did this for free for a long time and was not effectively supported by listener donations. To those complaining- how much did you give? How much free work do you yourself do when trying to house and educate and care for yourself and your family? His family needs to eat and have a good solid roof and functional vehicles and care for them and their animals while he is giving hundreds of hours a month to this podcast and trying to keep it all together. Can you afford to NOT have one treat, costly coffee, beverage, dessert each month so that this podcaster can feed his family and continue to put out content you claim mattered to you before the price tag was added to come of it? Or must it be free for you in order to be of value? Because- it was never and is never free to Daniele Bolelli to provide these episodes to you for free! He carried your tab for years asking for help. The little help that came did not permit this to continue totally for free. Please- People- Show some gratitude. You lost some access for free- you were not 100% abandoned. Do not slam a generous man who was forced set a boundary in order to continue making this show. His situation is not that of anyone but him so should not be given the “Yeah But so and so is Free” BS! Thanks you Daniele Bolelli for being my teacher through these podcasts! I love HOF!!!! "History On Fire- where History ceases to written only by the "oppressors"!!!!
