Talk With History Podcast

The Talk With History podcast is a closer look at how the past continues to impact today.

TWH was born from a desire to dive deeper in to the historical events that continue to impact our lives every day…without many even realizing it. Many episodes start from where we have walked in our YouTube journey and include details that may not have made the editor’s cut!
