Subtle smooth and no fluff Xcellent

My new favourite podcast. A wallop of a story teller. Atmospheric, especially this one about the Wager. Thank you for such a well told tale that is so very engrossing realistic and a bit awesome. How those men surmounted difficulties well beyond anything we encounter nowadays. I'm just so pleased I found this podcast, from an internet search where I found daminteresting.com then it said you have a podcast too. Thank you
