Tudor Dynasty with Rebecca Larson
I really do love this podcast. One of the attributes that makes or breaks a podcast for me is the narration. Ms. Larson delivers a well narrated podcast with an easy listening tone and keeps the contents compelling. She obviously does an intense amount of research, is able to deliver her findings in a succinct and direct manner. It is also important to her to acknowledge contributors, which I feel is extremely considerate as this takes time and effort yet it is done at the opening of each program.
Keep it up! You’re doing a wonderful job.
