  1. Darryl,
    Your podcast series on the new jerusalem was amazing. I was hooked and i am hanging our for your next episode. Will it be coming soon?


  2. Great orator. Great ability to convey facts and context without bias. I was yet another that got hooked, I listened to all available episodes in two days while at work and out of work. Your obvious diligence and passion for researching and imparting this important period of history is very apparent and is appreciated. As a high school dropout who has become very interested in trying to become an informed person. You’ve made this very digestible. As well as shown its importance and lasting affects today. I first got hooked on Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History and the history in an hour series’s. This has been the perfect follow up to these. Thank you

  3. I’m new here. Absolutely awesome ! WW2 until current one day I hope bcs I’m ” Jonesin’ ” for the next episode. Riveting and delivered with such passion. Thank you for putting it all together. A masterpiece !!!

    • I’m glad you’re enjoying it! If you have any questions for the upcoming Q&A, go ahead and leave them here. I’m so terrible at Twitter and Facebook that if you send them there I’ll probably lose track.

  4. I listen to a lot of podcasts as I drive a lot for my job. I’ve listened to the first two episodes and am blown away by the depth, content, and oritory value of this incredible topic. Thanks so much for putting this out. I don’t typically review the podcasts I listen to, but feel compelled because this is so good. This is an issue that we have all heard about but rarely know about.

  5. This podcast is the best, non-biased account of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. It’s honestly a valuable resource that is also exciting to listen to. Everything is well documented and thoroughly explained. This is truly an asset to anyone interested in learning the history of one of, if not the most important conflict of our generation. I’ve referred numerous people to listen to Martyrmade! Can’t wait until the next episode!

  6. Really captivated by the podcast. I’ve always felt my opinions on the Arab-Israeli conflict were grossly under informed, now after listening to your first four episodes I only feel more so. Usually I can develop an armchair opinion on any topic I’ve read up on to some extent, but I feel totally helpless when musing on this subject. Not sure if that’s the feeling you were trying to put on your listeners, but it certainly makes for incredibly captivating listening.

    The thoughts that comes to my mind are a mixture of sympathy for all involved fighting with a constant internal monologue of, “This isn’t my war.” I’m a young atheist from Texas. At the same time though, and I’m sure just about every generation of Americans since the First World War have felt something like this, it’s hard to shake the feeling that everything that happens in that small area of the Middle East will have lasting, and quite possibly rather sudden consequences over here and everywhere else.

    At any rate, fantastic job you’re doing. Starting with Joe Rogan, I’ve fallen in love with the long-form podcast format, and yours is an awesome example. Thrilling, anxiety-inducing, tear-jerking, informative, interesting, and very entertaining.

    I have to ask, what was that song you used at the end of Episode 2? Sounds like early 70’s Can mixed with Slint and given a drink of early Seattle Grunge.

    • Hi Robert,

      Forgive the short reply, I’m trying to get better about it but haven’t quite succeeded yet. I’m glad you’re getting something out of this series. Thanks for listening.

      The song at the end of Ep 2 is This Dust Makes That Mud, by The Liars.

  7. Wow – Darryl I am enamored by your podcast. I was looking for an unbiased look into the Arab-Israeli conflict on podcast. What I found with you is above and beyond what I was expecting. I’m only on episode 2 and I can’t wait to leave work so I can listen on my drive home. Excellent work! You make the history come alive and very interesting.

  8. I’m an avid listener from the Uk and started listening after Jocko made a plug. Have to say your podcast is one of my favourites up there with Dan Carlin & Dan Bolelli. Did not think the subject would be my thing but your delivery, research and balance made the subject winsome and addictive. You have done the impossible balancing both sides to this complex and emotive subject. Awesome job. Keep up the good work.
