Texas History Lessons

What an informative and interesting podcast ~ TWO THUMBS UP!

The best show!

Love listening about the history from my home state in such a digestible fashion, and also love the Texas music to go with it!


It is refreshing to hear about Texas History that is not whitewashed, and doesn’t exclude the people and events that truly encompass real history. I cannot wait to hear his take on Spanish History and beyond. I also love the bonus episodes.

Well Worth It !

I discovered this podcast 2 days ago and the way Michael presents the stories is terrific, not to mention the music in the background. I used to live in Southeast Texas from the mid-1970’s to the late 1980’s where my elementary and junior high schools where we learned about the history of Texas for several weeks. Although I live in Louisiana now, I still call Texas as “my home”. This brings me back to it. I look forward to hearing more episodes down the road.

A passionate look at Texas history.

Great show. Michael Sparkman does an incredible job of exploring the cracks and crevices of Texas history that have so enriched who we are. On top of that, Michael is a superb musicologist on just about every artist who has a tie to Texas. He is an independent historian and producer who does this because of personal passion and you won’t be disappointed.

Love this podcast!

Michael does a great job of unpacking various subjects of Texas history. As casual as he sounds when delivering his episodes, you can tell he’s done his homework! And he’s so responsive when you send him a question or comment. Can’t say enough good things about this podcast!
