Well worth the listen!

Thorough history detailing ALL the crusades, even ones you’ve never heard of. Brilliant narration, highly enjoyable, and quite funny. If you like a brief overview of events, pass on by, because this goes deep!

Thank you Sharon for keeping me company while I cook dinner each night for the past year (and the intro music works to get my wife’s appetite up)

I have just heard Sharyns episode on David’s History of England. I know this was done years ago - I loved it and want to hear more. I can’t find the first episodes. Are they still available?
