⚡️ Who Is The Greatest Leader Of All Time In History (BBC Poll)

In this episode, we attempt to answer who is the greatest leader of all time. The BBC History magazine ran a poll and asked over 5000 history scholars to vote on this very question. The winner won by 38% of the overall votes and Matthew Lockwood (History Professor at University of Alabama) was the historian who had put this great leader forward. The results have had a life changing impact on Matthew's life. Out of all of the episodes I have ever recorded on this podcast, this has to be the one that has had the biggest impact on me personally.

This episode is dedicated Sidhu Moose Wala (one of the biggest Punjabi singers of all time who passed away on 29th May 2022). He was a creative genius who has left a lasting legacy for all Punjabi's to follow: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidhu_Moose_Wala
