Really enjoy this author. He has like 5 books - all non fiction. I've listened to all of them as he is a good reader.
Then, this year, he started a podcast called Revisionist History. This link will take you to his page, but it's currently advertising episode 9. https://revisionisthistory.com
The podcast is fantastic.
Start with "Blame Game"
"In the summer and fall of 2009, hundreds of Toyota owners came forward with an alarming allegation: Their cars were suddenly and uncontrollably accelerating. Toyota was forced to recall 10 million vehicles, pay a fine of more than $1 billion, and settle countless lawsuits. The consensus was that there was something badly wrong with the worldâ€™s most popular cars. Except that there wasnâ€™t.
â€œBlame Gameâ€ looks under the hood at one of the strangest public hysterias in recent memory. What really happened in all those Camrys and Lexuses? And how did so many drivers come to misunderstand so profoundly what was happening to them behind the wheel? The answer touches on our increasingly fraught relationship to technology and the dishonesty and naivetÃ© of many in the media."
Then, I would listen to Saigon, 1965 about the Vietnam war.
