History Unplugged Podcast

Scott Rank, PhD

For history lovers who listen to podcasts, History Unplugged is the most comprehensive show of its kind. It's the only show that dedicates episodes to both interviewing experts and answering questions from its audience. First, it features a call-in show where you can ask our resident historian (Scott Rank, PhD) absolutely anything (What was it like to be a Turkish sultan with four wives and twelve concubines? If you were sent back in time, how would you kill Hitler?). Second, it features long-form interviews with best-selling authors who have written about everything. Topics include gruff World War II generals who flew with airmen on bombing raids, a war horse who gained the rank of sergeant, and presidents who gave their best speeches while drunk.

  • Great history podcast

    I’ve listened to several of these now. The host has people with many points of view on. On one he specifically mentioned that he did not necessarily agree with all of the guest’s views. more

    Ive been listening to this pod for years. It’s very well done, informative and interesting. The topics are unusual in a good way. But…. I just listened to the 1619 Project episode and came away stunned. Certainly there are different views of this Project. It’s not flawless. But the vehemence and code words used by host and guest were unreal for a legit podcast in 2022. It truly sounded like a Trumpian apology for slavery. Shameful, honestly. After listening to this episode I researc... more
