'The Inca's Last Stand' has the quote: "When history is written by the victors, how can you tell what's really true?" The Capitol riots episode makes me question this podcast's bias - what else is being slanted that I don't even realize?

However today's was about the recent Capitol breach and there was a lot of opinions being thrown around. I can listen to any of the current garbage news outlets to hear about opinions. you've lost me
