Great History Podcast!
This is a great history podcast! It's engaging, well written, and well presented!
This is a fantastic podcast about Vikings! I've only listned to the first 3 episodes, but so far so good! Keep up the good work!
Not your Grandma's Vikings!!!!
I was impressed with the amount of time put into the show. It was obvious the host put a great deal of work into creating this entertaining show. Dare I say it's gripping? I think I do. Norse Mythology and history in general has always intrigued me, but if you only listen to 1 of the first 3 episodes, I recommend Lindisfarne. The host has a way of telling a story by bring you along on a ride with him, then he tells you a description that makes you feel like you're there, and finally brings down the hammer (yes, like Thor) to bring everything full circle to set us up for understanding what the show is going to be about in the future. Great work, and looking forward to hearing your weekly show!!!!
