    Have you listened to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History on WWI? I've listened to the first 4 episodes 3 times.

    Best informative podcast out there IMO

    It was really good. He does a good job with each topic he discusses. His Ghosts of the Ostfront series on the eastern front of WW2 was awesome.

    Russia still looks like this
    I went there in 1995 and it was a country frozen in time. While some of the more major cities are updated the outlining regions aren't. People still shit on the curb literally and stuff like that
    Again, appreciate Amercia because the rest of the world outside Western Europe and Japan still look like this

    Agree, in some places you get outside the big cities and you end up walking back in time. It's crazy.
