There are two areas of excellence in this podcast that make it very useful and enjoyable:

1) Explanation of the Subject
Islam contains a great amount of jargon, and yet the podcast is accessible to those who don't know the jargon, because it is introduced slowly and well defined. It is presented very well in a narrative style, but full of historical context to understand what is happening. It is wonderfully interesting and quite binge-able. There is a lot to be said for any history podcast that goes to this level of depth, but still offers this depth in bite-size segments.

2) Structure
Somehow, this is the ONLY podcast that I listen to that has the following structure:
A) very brief intro
B) next segment of the story
C) optional end notes that includes additional explanations, audience questions, and podcast administration.

EVERY podcast should be of this format. It boggles the mind that so many podcasts put long ads in all the strangest places. Or those that take forever to get started. It is clear that Elias is respecting our time.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect.

It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...

Once one of my favorite sites to navigate, learn useless trivia, and waste hours on - Cracked has gradually descended into clickbait, heavy politicized liberal slam pieces, and generally has grown more and more akin to Buzzfeed in recent years.

The interesting thing is that althoug...
