a refreshing and interesting podcast
I listen to a lot of history podcasts and this one is very good about striking the balance between education and entertainment. The first few are rough and ready as far as audio, but as the new intro episode says, don't let that throw you.
Just needs to get a bit better
The recording quality isn't quite there yet (I just wrapped up episode 10). Also the narrative meanders a bit at times. Overall though, definitely sticking with it. I'm really enjoying it. The material is great and much of it just comes to life though the narrative.
Hope there’s more
Insanely detailed and really sets the scene so you get a full view of the issues surrounding every episode. It’s not just a narrow blip about on a single aspect, this podcast seems to encompass the greater issues surrounding the main focus of each episode. I can’t even touch on how much I’ve picked up that I’d otherwise be oblivious to. I love listening and even though I don’t listen in the order they’re released, with as much information that’s provided I can still link them together and form a greater picture. I look forward to finishing up and hearing more.
