Dusse reviewed this podcast on Jul 1st, 2017
"Telling such a capitivating tale of the 20th century interweaving politics, culture, technology and much more is quite the feat. One episode might tell the story of Russian ballet, another about the Italian going to war in Libya and then the next about the development of flight. All these stories are told in an equally enthralling way, and manage somehow to tie together a coherent story about the events in the entire world during the century."
