I'm Disappointed

I'm disappointed because I don't think I'll ever find another podcast that I enjoy as much as this one!! It's akin to when you discover some book you love and then you try to find others like it but you soon realize the one you started with everyone considers the best, so you've got no place to go but down. Such is the case with this one. It's the best. Mr. Brownworth is a true, even-handed history who is not only accurate, but presents the information in such a fascinating way that you can't wait to get started on the next episode as soon as you finish the last. The truly blessed are Mr. Brownworth's students.

Brownsworth has created a podcasting Masterpiece!

I first discovered Brownworths work late one night at the office. I was instantly hooked. I enjoy this series more than any recorded book. On a recent road trip to the coast, my friends were captivated by the incredible narrative style. They could not believe this was a historical lecture series. We had to finish segment 3 before we could get out of our parked car to eat lunch! Download and enjoy!

One of the best podcasts.

He teaches like he is talking to a friend. I find myself listening to episodes more than once - definitely a must have. After listening to this podcast, I hope he will do others.
