Discussing Uncommon Subjects!
Great podcast all around! The layout is great and they discuss interesting topics that other podcasts haven’t focused on. It’s a great mix between the esoteric and the historical. Only wish they would go into just a bit more detail. Other than that, I listen to them as soon as they release an episode!
Very well researched and thorough.
