Top shelf podcast

These guys are so relatable, I feel like I am there in the pub, Guinness in hand!! Singing the theme song and having a conversation with interesting people about fascinating topics.

Very good podcast series...

Refreshing approach, great selection of topics, and thoughtful, well-prepared presenters.

I personally would prefer less casual chatting and more focus on the advertised topic(s). For example, I wanted to listen to the podcast on ancient Wisconsin mound building, but it was tiresome to have to listen to a lengthy digression on James Bond before the topic was addressed.
