Downgraded the star rating on this podcast due to the increased frequency with which Chris Novembrino appears. Chris is smart and knows what he is talking about, but he is the Steven crowder of the left. His podcast took a major left turn when he lost his co-host which is ok. But, like crowder, he is loud, obnoxious, and fairly impolite. Once he stopped playing moderately, his negative qualities took center stage and it is extremely off putting.
He has an insatiable need to be heard. Like people won’t know he’s smart if he isn’t talking every 10 seconds. In the ‘black swans’ episode of my history, Chris constantly interrupts and talks over Bruce, just like he does with all the guests on his podcast. I came here to listen some something intelligent with historical backgrounds, and instead get an insecure adolescent constantly pulling on daddy’s pant leg for attention.
Bruce is great. Very smart, very well informed. His stuff his well researched with lots of historical background. I will keep coming back for him, and will increase my rating when more mature guests start to appear.
