Extremely captivating series, wish there was more than one episode a month but I guess all great things take time.

Finally found a podcast worth listening too!

As with other listeners I stumbled on to the podcast when searching for another. I listened to this podcast and never continued to look for the other!!

My new favorite

Stumbled on Conflicted when searching for another podcast episode about Marquis De Sade. Listened to Conflicted’s episode instead, liked it well enough to subscribe. 🤷🏻‍♀️ You can tell the host knows his stuff and that he cares about the subject as well as the narrative. Good variety in topics, i l…

Amazing series!

I am a pod junkie. Listen to a ton of history and story telling podcast. This is #1, especially the ones on the the Yum Kippur War and 6 days way. So so good. Please keep these coming!

N for Nuanced

I appreciate the intensely tedious and methodical effort by the Author to give honest and forthright evaluations. All content is presented with a focus on veracity of facts and acknowledges the blank spaces between them. Also, great is the engaging storytelling; confronting bigoted and long establi…

Well researched and exciting history

This is a well researched podcast. Zach does an amazing job of connecting historical facts in an engaging way. I have learned so much listening to ALL of these podcasts, and hope to hear more.

Absolutely awesome

This is by far my favorite podcast. The host has a fantastic grasp on every subject and I look forward to every episode. Waiting patiently for new ones!


I have enjoyed and learned from each pod. A great addition to my history podcast library.

Instantly addictive

Absolutely addicted to this podcast after 10 minutes. Fantastic writing that keeps you wanting to learn more. Can’t wait for each new episode! I’m so happy Zach is making more episodes! This podcast is my favorite show.

Great content

So many options of interesting topics. A great storyteller, definitely adding to my favorites!

Wish High School was like this

Wow. I am by no means a history buff, but I love this podcast. Extremely well done and engaging. Highly recommend.

One of My Favorites!

Zach Cornwell has a gift for presenting history! Every episode is an exciting listen and I look forward to many more of them!

Informative and fun!

I’ve truly enjoyed this podcast. I’ve learned the details about events often mentioned but not previously known to me. The best is Zachs’ delivery! He is articulate, so knowledgeable, and current in his way of sharing “what happened and why it happened.” We need more, please keep recording!

An Outstanding History Podcast!

This podcast is well researched and very well presented. Zach is a delightful host who is both passionate and knowledgeable about history. I always learn something new after listening and look forward to many more episodes!

I just binged a history class and loved it

Zach is easy to listen to as he discusses the parts of history our textbooks avoid. He takes you on a journey across the globe to experience the truth of times and places you thought you knew. I found myself googling places, people, and technology just to learn more about it. Can't wait for more ep…

Just An Amazing Listen

Love the perfect mix of storytelling, information, and POV. This is extremely well written and recorded. High reco for anyone, history buff or not.

Actually Want To Learn

Y’all normally I hate history. The only other time I have ever enjoyed it was when my teacher was great, so since I enjoy it again this should say something. This is the first time I have willingly listened to anything having to do with history outside of school and it is so great. Zach wraps you…


I grew up with my Mother emphasizing current events from the age of 14 on. This podcast on the six day war gives not only facts but what leaders were thinking and what they were saying at important times. I love the "story telling" ability of Zach's voice.

One of the BEST History Podcasts!

My entire subscribe list is centered around history based podcasts, and this one is top tier! Zach Cornwell has is great at making the listener see both sides of historical events or wars through story telling & facts they didn’t have in history books growing up. Truly a great listen!!

Better than Joe Rogan

This podcast, is arguably one of the top podcasts out there today. Zach hits all the correct notes and makes learning about history fun and interesting.
