What a find!
I stumbled on to this podcast 2 days ago and I love it!
iTunes featured this show under"What's Hot", so I gave it a listen. Right off the bat, there is only a brief intro or none at all. I really appreciate that since it's practically mipossible to fast-forward past them in a podcast. The speakers are engaging and enthusiastic, making the topics more interesting than I could imagine.
Listen to the first 5-10 min. If that episode doesn't entice you to keep listening, try another.
I am not a (an?) history buff. But I love a good story and learning new things. Now I know a lot more about the Civil War in just 48 hrs!
Hopefully, they keep adding new episodes.
Interesting lectures, but I can't read the title of the lectures without downloading them. It would be nice to read the subject of the lecture before downloading.
