Excellent podcast. Keep it coming. :)
Informative and Fascinating
So far I particularly enjoyed the epic episodes covering the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. Keep up the great work!
A Whole New World!
This podcast is opening a whole new world for me. I self-identify as a history nerd. I know bunches about Western history. I don't know much at all about Indian history. Dot Indian, not feather Indian. Thanks to Vivek Vasan's Historical India Podcast, I'm learning a lot about Indian history and loving every minute of it. Vivek has a very subtle and charming sense of humor that makes this podcast even better!
