Required listening, so well done.
Still at beginning, but so much enjoying this educational and emotional podcast. Time to learn more!
It was great. Moving. Informative. Full of facts but also the personal touch.
Sometimes you need to feel uncomfortable about your ancestral past so that you can learn from your predecessors mistakes and be better. 1619 does not shy away from some of the worst parts of injustice in America. It is an amazingly well produced show and helps really shed some light on the areas that conveniently get left out of our history lessons in school. Thank you for making this brave and bold show.
Sometimes this was a 5, sometimes it was a 3. Sometimes super interesting and important, other times it felt a little long winded and not impactful.
This is a thoroughly researched project that is a must listen for all Americans.
Binged this in a day. The scattered mosaic style presentation was exciting and definitely supported the main thesis of this show. I just wish some things were a little more in depth. I do think this format of related audio essays has legs and the Times seems to be on top of the ball. 4/5 origin stories
Finally had some quiet time to devote to listening to this series. It is brilliantly done, educational, and so very necessary. We all need to listen to it to understand how this country has the blood of enslaved people running through all its veins to this day.
Just a few episodes in, but this is on its way to being one of the best (important, impactful, well produced) podcasts I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.
This podcast is astonishing.
This podcast i replay over and over! The stories and history are so unforgettable. The segments are just enough to stay in your brain without being overwhelming. I am eagerly awating the next one!
Lots of hype around this series, and it mostly lives up to it. It's well made and very educational, but doesn't hold my attention for the entire 35-40 minutes.
Any show that can make me riveted by history is exceptional. This is U.S. history from the point of African Americans, narrated by an African American, using voices of African Americans as primary sources. Stellar sound-quality and amazing storytelling. Why hasn't there been a podcast like this before?
