Quite Immersive, Engaging, and Well-Researched
After listening through his Shot Heard Round the World series, I can safely say this man put his heart and soul into this podcast. I found his narrations very well composed and compelling. He employs a great deal of pathos with a narrative that equals the quality of a written script, but never sounds as if he simply reads from a script.
He built that series from quite a lot more research than most other podcasters, or even some academic lectures, would use. He actually traveled to libraries to read original documents in order to get an idea of how the people involved really thought and felt. I felt that aspect particularly fascinating. Then he offers suggestions for further reading, not just on a major topic in each episode, but in specific elements discussed.
I have found only a very few podcasts and university lectures that I have found of great and everlasting value, and this is one. I truly hope he continues with this. I cannot imagine how much time, effort, and cost such a series requires, but it must be quite taxing. I highly recommend this podcast to people who are fascinated by history and who have a desire to really gain some sense of what it was like to stand there in some place and time, as a great event unfolds around you. It's very difficult to find a lecturer or podcaster who can provide that.
Really amazing and detailed. I loved it. Keep up the great work.
Well Researched and Beautifully Presented
Great stuff Marc! I love the attention to detail and your thoughtful take on certain aspects of the events. I for one really enjoy hearing your 2 cents.
Keep them coming!
