Well Worth Your Time! Sariusly.
Just listened to eps 1 -5. Perfect for the History lovers like me who have heard of Belisarius ,know he's importantant, but havn't quite got around to reading those academic looking books you've seen. Well written , perfectly pitched, with an uncanny knack of prempting and answering the questions you have as you listen along. Sits nicely with the other quality history podcasts , to which Mr Bones gives credit. Thanks!!!
Well written, insightful and often full of humour, I recommend this podcas. It has the potential to stand out amongst a whole host of quality history podcasts. Kudos to Mr Bones
