Completely left slanted framed as thoughtful with production and slow rhythm speech. BS indoctrination to fake news!

this podcast is pretty entertaining but it seems to be some truth mixed with some partisan liberal ideology. while bashing the conservative viewpoint as being haughty thinking that they have the truth on their side the author does the same.

Description

C13Originals and Pulitzer Prize winner and best-selling author Jon Meacham, co-creators of the 2021 Webby Award-winning Best Podcast Series It Was Said and the acclaimed podcast Hope, Through History, join together again for a brand-new series that will guide listeners through critical moments in our history. Every Monday through Friday, Meacham travels back to impactful events that occurred on that date in history—the birth of a visionary filmmaker, the debut of an iconic athlete, the discovery of a lifesaving cure, a triumphant legal victory. You’ll learn how that event shaped politics, art, culture, sports and science, and why it’s still relevant today.
