I love this podcast so much! Emma and Janina are both so smart and funny! I learn so much from them! This is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to during long days at work...I feel like I'm hanging out with my super cool, incredibly intelligent friends!
Informative and Fun
Smart, well-informed, and fun, these Aussie hosts are at home in their field here. It is much more of a conversation, with laughter and authenticity, than your typical lecture-like history show. This is a good one to enjoy over a pint.
Great chemistry, content, knowledge, perspectives, and sense of humor!
