Not history but propaganda

The subjects of these wasted hours are selected by the BBC’s leftwing political commissars for the indoctrination of the audience. They have nothing to do with history.

Favourite podcast.

Most digestible and fascinating way to consume history. Broadens my thinking in the only way history can. Shouldn’t have bothered going to school.

Unfortunate cut off

I love this podcast, & look forward to hearing it every week. However, I was quite disappointed when the most recent episode cut off after only two minutes. Please remedy the issue so your listeners can fully enjoy the program.

Love the podcasts...

Sometimes they don’t load or skip a bit. Other than this tech, the quality of the program is excellent. Very fair and factual view of history.

Why I’m unsubscribing

I’m unfortunately unsubscribing to this podcast. It has a lot of interesting content but with the recent release of the episode involving Judge Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill that I realized this podcast has a definite political lean to the left. By not including the Judge’s side of the story nor all the facts against Anita Hill, they are showing they only care about one side of the coin of history. It’s unfortunate, but I like having both sides of the story not just the one you agree with.

Titles

Awesome podcast. Interesting. Looking at past episodes they are mislabeled so don’t pick one you want to hear. Just listen to all of them. It’s worth it.

Interesting, informative

This podcast is excellent, interesting, and informative, but it is also easy and fun to listen to. It highlights both major and little-known historical events. I appreciate that it investigates women’s history, disability history, and gay history. One of the best podcasts out there, highly recommended.

Brilliant

Like many BBC podcasts, this is an absolute treasure and I can’t believe it isn’t better known. Every episode is a fascinating collection of stories told by the people that witnessed pivotal moments in history. Keep up the great work Max and the team.

Historical conspiracy theories

I’ve always loved history and really enjoy this podcast. He does an excellent job telling the story in a way that keeps the listener interested while giving facts and explaining how these stories could have come out of the time period in question. I learn something new every episode. Would definitely recommend!

If you like.....

If you like left wing sissies, virtue signaling, anti-white, anti-male bologna, this might be the show for you. Listening to this show makes it easier to understand how England is handing itself over to a hostile third world invasion and occupation of the land of my ancestors and won’t be long til I see them all with there foreheads to the ground and butts in the air five times a day in the next few years.

Learn, learn, learn

Whilst no one could possible contain everything they hear in a podcast like this one, the history hour does present interesting and thought provoking snippets of the past that provide insight into some of the hardest and/or most elating times in the history of the world.Thanks BBC - Keep up the good work.
