These podcasts are awesome
I really like these podcasts. They're much more detailed than I thought it would be. Looks like they have stopped though since there are no new ones since earlier in the year.
That's a shame. Thanks for making the original six.
These seem to be well researched and well written. If only they came out more regularly… I want to hear what happens next!
An Unexpected Find
This podcast has a lot going for it. I love history, and the delivery of it makes all the difference. Cary is entertaining and approachable in his style and manages to cram in a LOT of information without being pedantic. I hope he makes this a more regular habit/hobby, because he has a knack for spinning out historical information in a very cohesive and interesting way. I look forward to the next episode!
