Awesome podcast, interesting informationI discovered this podcast about a year ago, and have been working my way through all the episodes. I absolutely love it (especially when Tracy laughs - such a great laugh!) and am always excited for a new episode.

Excellent PodcastThis is a really good podcast for history nerds. I would like to give 5 stars but I find that I can only listen to a few episodes at a time, as their voices make me a bit sleepy. It is definitely a well-researched and good podcast, though. I recommend it.

I’d love some more non-US based history (though the US stuff for a Brit like me is fascinating as I definitely didn’t learn any in history class).

:DReally good podcast! I always learn something new, even when it’s on a topic I had some pre-existing familiarity with, there’s usually something in the mix I hadn’t heard before. There are also so many topics I’d never had any idea about before there is an episode on it - they really do find some incredible stories most of us would never otherwise get to hear about! They do both have somewhat nasal voices, but it feels like people who are complaining about it are really just being kind of mean-spirited; by the time you’re a few minutes into an episode you’re used to it, just the same as with anyone’s voice.

Easy to bingeMost annoying thing is when the hosts try to authentically pronounce Spanish names as it is gratingly clear that the one lady studied French and tries to roll her rs in the back of her throat not with her tongue which like, hello it’s Spanish and all y’all are located in the USA so it’s not a leap to expect that you would get Spanish right. And then it’s like ugh just give up your French isn’t great either and just splits focus. But aside from my personal pet peeve, content on the whole is well done.

AmateurI’ve just listened to Ferdinand and Barbara. The two podcast hosts here are obviously and plainly reading off a basic script; there is no real expertise in the subject other than quickly google searching their topics and seemingly copying and pasting their “research” into a word document and verbatim reading what they’ve found out. There is a softness in trying to delve into the real and hard truth of history and humanity, by giving this modern, safespacish, woke warning that there is a description of attempted suicide of this royal couple. Life before 2019 could perhaps be somewhat difficult. Life in the 1730s is brutal relative to our 2019. Additional to this point, the hosts mentioned what could be an interesting deathbed anecdote of Ferdinand, but then bumble around a description in fear of offending the delicate audience (source obviously dug from Wikipedia which was in turn lifted from Britannica) in Spanish which they didn’t even bother to translate into English other than to say it was “brutal” and you could look at it yourself, and then translate into English using google translate but be careful because it’s in old Spanish? Couldn’t believe how lazy this was. Stay clear of these two “historians”. I don’t know who they’re paying to manipulate the algorithms, but it’s a pile of rotten cheese ball history.

They both ramble and are repetitive, when a tighter script without so many personal references would be so much more engaging and a much better use of time. 2) I’m sorry, but I find their nasal voices and accents horribly grating. I know they can’t help it, but this is an honest review. 3) The content seems too America-centric. There is a whole world out there that’s had so much more time to create history.

What’s with so many repetitive commercials?!?!!I have been listening to this podcast for the last 2+ years & loved the array of topics and I can really appreciate the care & research that goes into presenting an unbiased view if events. However, I am extremely disappointed in the amount of commercial content as of late. Recently, the commercials have greatly increased and have even repeated the EXACT SAME commercial 3x in a row, during the 4 commercial interruptions. The ratio of commerical to actual podcast content has become ridiculous. The last episode I listenered to was a just shy of 33% commercial content (37 minutes total, or which 12 minutes were repetitive commercials) 😡. The commercial interrupt mid-sentence & even if I skip through the commercials, I often forget what the hosts were saying by the time it gets back to the show content..Score: 2/5

Much enjoy this podcastJust wanted to say that I really enjoy the show. Not sure why people have been so harsh in their reviews lately. I think Holly and Tracy are entertaining and informative. Their podcasts have been my companion when working in my office alone and with me while running errands on the weekends. The increase in commercials is not my favorite, but also probably not something they can control. Ultimately, I have learned things I didn’t know and have been intrigued enough on other subjects to dig deeper on my own. It’s great to have a podcast to listen to that isn’t just pop culture, or crime. Keep up the great work!.Score: 5/5

Ads have made it unlistenableStuff You Missed In History Class is genuinely one of my favorite podcasts, I look forward every week to the new episodes. However, the recent uptick in ads in combination with the questionable advertisers now being promoted in the show have me seriously considering whether I will keep listening. There used to be one ad break per show, maybe two if it was a long episode. Now the show starts and ends with ads and has at least two ad breaks in the middle. I have also heard numerous diet ads and faux medical ads urging people to talk to their doctor about weight loss solutions. This was especially disheartening for me after everything I know about Holly and Tracey. I know ads are a necessary evil of podcasts but I am seriously disappointed in how this show has handled ads lately..Score: 1/5

Interesting if amateurI keep listening as I find some of the topics of this podcast quite interesting and as many of them are one episode it can be a nice alternative to a longer history podcast series. Honestly, though, the hosts, while well researched, are very amateurish and sound like a pair of immature friends planning a presentation. Not giving a presentation, just planning it.
