Engaging and informative!
This is an excellent podcast, very informative and the host is wonderful to listen to. Thank you and we look forward to future episodes!
Great stuff Jenn,
I’m an old trucker and it’s great listening to the Story of Ned while driving along. Really appreciate the efforts you have put in to these episodes. Have passed link on to my mates.
Keep up the good work
Detailed and esay to listen to.
I have listened to 13 of the 18 parts on Ned Kelly now and I can tell Jenny has researched this podcast very well. She pays close attention to detail and tries to do this epic story justice from all perspectives. She has a great voice for podcasting and her narration style is very personable - you feel like she is telling you the story personally, which is a refreshing difference from other other coldly narrated podcasts. Would highly recommend.
