Slow, too much editorial.
Excellent podcast. Interesting-ish subject quickly becomes fascinating by the host great explaining the history. There's a decent pace, as the narrator zooms in and out between the macro and micro levels.
The episodes focusing on technology are the best, some of the human focused stories focus too much on how tiny improvements help the entire USA while hurt some concentrated group.
