Learn, be amazing at parties

LOVED this. It's one of my all time favourites, All 100 episodes make for a marvelous journey. Learned soooooo much about so many things. Way beyond the historical event. My #1 reccomennded podcast. Note: Listen in order if you can. Don't worry if you can’t. Makes a great break when you are listening to lots of casts on trips and stuff. Mix 'em up.


Although I often visit and enjoy museums, this series takes one’s appreciation of an item to a whole new level. I hope to visit the British Museum and see many of the subjects of the episodes, while listening to the relevant podcast.

Ice-free corridor

Great except for the ice free corridor bit!
