Great Podcast on Mongol History
Just finished all the episodes now and all were absolutely great listenings on the impact and effect of the Mongol Empire. Very appreciative of your efforts of putting these together.
Please come back! I would love a podcast on the whole northwest region of China, and surroundings. I am reading a book, "Silk Roads" - it is fascinating. The history of that region is known for thousands of years back. It helps to understand the region as it is today.
I like to read history. Lately have not had time to read. This podcast is just amazing. I am afraid that I might leave reading books if I can find podcasts this good (scary thought )
Thank you for this podcast.
