    First of all, please accept my heartfelt congratulations on your upcoming waiting. Don’t worry, the dysfunctional news will still be there when you post podcasts!
    I had an 8th grade teacher who told us (40 years ago) that every time we read a newspaper we are reading propaganda. So I caught on to the problems very early on. These days, I am thoroughly convinced that journalism has “dumbed down” – the credentials of these so-called analysts that you mentioned are examples of why I do not listen to them . As a reader of history, I want facts and context when I hear the news and am not going to get it from most of the available news sources. To that end, I do not listen to CNN nor their so-called analysts, do listen to NPR (with critical filters), and get my news from reasonable sources such as the Economist, Wall Street Journal, again critically.

    Another podcast worth listening to is My History can Beat Up Your Politics which gives gives political history context to current events. If there are other high level history podcasts, I’d love to know.
    I have been very impressed with the podcasts so far and look forward to hearing more!
    Keep up the good work!

    PS– I have your History of Rome books… well done!
