This episode cuts off mid-sentence here. The last minute or so is clipped.

Please move on. We're missing important caracter and life history traits from Napoleon while you focus on this anglo-centric Nelson parenthesis.

this guy spends about 10% of every episode demanding money whislt producing one audio a month, then invites a fellow grift on to explain why he needs more money for his "project" rather than use the podcast to talk about Napoleons invasion of Russia 😂 this podcast is becoming a waste of time. sad.

your endless grifting for money despite only releasing a podcast every month or 2 is quite extraordinary.

three episodes on Nelson emphasising his supposed "character flaws". you really are one odd little Commie. Can't be bothered listening to any more politically motivated, overtly partisan pre tyrannical, pro revolutionary tripe. good day.

This is the third time I'm listening through all the episodes. What a revolutionary (troll face) way to consume history, this is. hands down the best podcast of all time and incredibly impressive work

I recently discovered this gem. This goes into such detail - in a way I couldn't fathom beforehand. Despite the Corsican parts feeling a bit slow to me, it is totally worth the wait dem thicc ads tho
