A Fantastic New Podcast!

I loved this podcast right out of the gate, but wanted to wait & see if it would keep coming out on a regular schedule before I reviewed. In short, this is a really fantastic podcast. It covers all the various ways humans obtained & prepared their food from the ealiest days of the hunter-gatherers all down through human history. Episode 3 featured an extremely interesting & thought-provoking discussion on whether humans moving from hunter-gatherer societies to more agricultural societies was necessarily a good move, in terms of both human health and societal pros/cons. Apart from the subject matter, the show also has everything else nailed down: great audio quality, background music (by the great Michael Levy), etc. Holden's delivery is also great - lots of info and lots of humor, presented in a very welcoming and congenial style. Here's to many more great episodes!

Love it!

Actually true to the title and doesn’t just cover Ancient Greece and Rome like many other “history” podcasts do. Love the recipes at the end. Wish there was an accompanying blog or something for the pictures of the finished product and recipes to review later. Also this podcast, in addition to being comprehensive, is very accurate to what we know about early history.

Please stop using the background music

It’s super distracting and the mix overpowers the voice. Other than that, so far so good.
