Something a little bit different

I am really enjoying this podcast. The topics are varied, and cover some very interesting people and events in history. Episodes are told in story form, which makes it different from most other history podcasts. Episodes are well researched and told with a little bit of passion. It is well worth your time to have a listen, I highly recommend it.
