“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.” George R.R. Martin

Seth Michels goes above and beyond on this podcast, taking the plunge and digging deep into some of history’s most crucial events, turning points, and unpopular realities.
Fusing impeccable research with a clear fascination for the process, the podcast is all at once respectably professional and brilliantly insightful.
Though still in its early days, the ten published episodes already showcase a host with an absolute passion for the details and for the truth that made up our world’s past.
A recent episode entitled Remembering Reagan Part 1 makes for a strong starting point – it deals with a familiar topic but spends its 84 minute lifespan offering up a series of new facts and moments to consider and to perhaps even re-frame what we thought we knew.
Notably unlike what you may remember from History classes back in the day, Seth’s approach is that of a contemporary and unedited individual – not so much family-friendly but categorically authentic at every step. There’s plenty of food for thought within these episodes, and given their length its easy to let the show play as you go about your daily business – the podcast makes for a provocative and somewhat eye-opening accompaniment to the fast-paced world we share today.
Seth keeps that realness at the forefront of his hosting throughout these episodes. There are elements we don’t know about from history, and then there are those we simply choose not to remember. The History Uncensored Podcast prompts us to face those unpopular truths, and, as suggested, to consider the way we really see events and figures from throughout the past few centuries.
Make no mistake, this is a podcast about REAL HISTORY. Seth Michels is not looking for approval or popularity – he’s looking to lay bare the truth. If you feel ready for that, the whole show to date is absolutely captivating.
“History is a dark place, it’s gritty, it’s nasty and when it comes to it human history is filled with idiots, and it’s filled with a few smart people who really pushed the world on the right path. Those are the people we want to remember. This is history uncensored. I want to change the way you look at history!“
