Fun and informative
I am a history buff and I love how she combines perspectives from the past and present as well as personal insights and experience to give you a full overview of the topic. She is clearly a well of knowledge. Looking forward to more episodes and to reading her book. I really appreciate that she has started included pictures in the downloads. Nice touch. Always informative, never stuffy and presentational.
