Redditor u/zippykeno asked the subreddit r/podcasts for recommendations: “I am looking to get in the podcast game. And I wanted to start with a podcast about modern history. Preferably something about the last 25 years or something.”
u/Accomplished_Beat224's favorite history podcast is The History of the Twentieth Century by Mark Painter. He is 315 episodes in he's covered up through 1938,” they explained, adding that the podcast has no ads.
“The first season was a deep dive into the Iraq War,” u/Nerokis explained, adding that, “the second season was about the Cuban Revolution, and the third season was about the Korean War. US shenanigans are the main through-line.”
As u/Nerokis explains, “The first season is about Watergate and the second season is about the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal. Feel free to listen to the Clinton/Lewinsky season and then Blowback's Iraq War season for a nice dive into the turn of the millennium-adjacent Americana, lol.”
