Improving quality

The podcast started out a little rough but I think the presenter's research, composition, and delivery have improved greatly.

Virginia History, Well Told

In choosing to tell a history of Virginia, Rob has chosen to focus on a state that was integral to the development and continued growth of the U.S. Considering that Virginia was amongst the earliest sites to see colonization, the podcast has done a great job placing the colonial activity in the context of the political and other situations of the mother country as well. I really enjoyed the series on Roanoke and the various theories regarding one of America’s oldest mysteries. The podcast should continue to deliver quality history into the future, so get on board!

Very detailed and fascinating

Being an early American history enthusiast, I've heard/read the Jamestown/founding of Virginia story countless times. However, this retelling is the first one in a long while in which I came away with new knowledge. Robert does a great job of explaining both the overarching events that impacted the establishment of Virginia as well as the details on the ground during those first steps. I'm looking forward to hearing more about the early days of Virginia as the podcast progresses.
