My new favourite Podcast

I only found this podcast after being all caught up with MFM Podcasts and needing something to listen to while waiting for new episodes to come out and honestly found myself laughing out loud many times, learning soo much and loving all the tangents. I now listen to Hysterical History everyday at work and come home with new stories from history to tell my partner, friends and family!! This is definitely my New Favourite Podcast!! Love your work!!
