I love this show. I found it accidentally and started listening regularly. It has become part of my morning routine and I learn new things from every episode. Thanks for this show Liz!

The best history podcast

I'm an AP US History teacher and I love this app! The authors and professors interviewed on BF World are like rock stars to me. The show is wonderfully detailed, original, thoughtful, and accessible. I learn so much from BFW and I am looking for ways to use it in my classroom.
