I listen to a lot of podcasts and this has been my favorite since I found it in 2016. Nate DiMeo crafts enticing slices of humanity from across space and time with impeccable sounds design. It is a history podcast that is more interested in feeling than fact but has the research chops to fit in with more stodgy pods. Listen in a dark room while doing nothing else and be transported.
If I have one qualm, it is that the arc of the stories DiMeo likes to tell are very similar. After a while you can anticipate the story beats. That said, it is still worth listening to every episode.
The atmosphere that Nate creates with his stories is so wonderful. They take you out the mondaine and make you listen. Really listen. To the poetic justice, or lack thereof. The changes that have occurred in society or .. the lack thereof.
All beautiful little histories, crafted by Nate and the team. I always listen to an episode when it hits my feed.
Beautiful audio art on out large and small moments in history. Just listen, any description will make it sound dry, and it is anything but. The personal storytelling brings me to tears on a regular basis.
