Can't wait for more episodes!!
Perfect for today's armchair anthropologists
I wish I could travel more than a full-time job and young kids allow me. Through this podcast I get to learn a bit about the history of interesting places--it's _almost_ as good as being there!
Love to travel and love stories!
Love to travel and love how this podcast helps me learn and imagine what happened at historic sites.
