American History Tellers
About This Show
The Cold War, Prohibition, the Gold Rush, the Space Race. Every part of your life -the words you speak, the ideas you share- can be traced to our history, but how well do you really know the stories that made America? We’ll take you to the events, the times and the people that shaped our nation. And we’ll show you how our history affected them, their families and affects you today. Hosted by Lindsay Graham (not the Senator). From Wondery, the network behind Tides Of History, History Unplugged, Fall Of Rome and Dirty John.

The Age of Jackson - Great White Father | 4
4 days ago
During his political rise, Jackson distinguished himself with his ability to exact ruthless military victories over indigenous people. As President Native Americans felt the brunt of this power. Whatever his achievements during his lifetime, his legacy is forever "Indian removal" from lands they'd originally inhabited to make way for white settlers. And none would feel the brunt of Jackson’s force more than the groups known as the Five Civilized Tribes—“civilized,” white settlers believed, because they raised animals and farmed.

Very well done.
I really like this show. It's very well done. The drama effects are enough to keep you engaged and keep your interest, but they don't distract from the narrative. Many history podcasters tend to drone on like a boring highschool teacher; Lindsay Graham (not the senator :p) is very engaging, like a great story teller. I would say this podcast is more akin to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History... Shorter and with sound effects. :) I recommend to anyone who wants an not-boring American history podcast.
