All this month, I’ve heard about the campaign to spread the news of podcasts called TryPod. As I am a voracious listener of podcasts (you can see the complete list of my current subscriptions and other recommendations on my podcast page), I figured I ought to participate while I can.

Host Nate DiMeo tells stories of little known historical events in United State’s history in a soothing tone of voice. DiMeo’s strength is providing vivid descriptions of the sights, sounds, and smells of an event, allowing the listener to experience events as they unfold rather than from hindsight.
It’s a short podcast, so if you don’t want to commit much time to listening to podcasts it’s a good place to start. Here are some of my favorite episodes:
