Love this podcast!!

I have always been very interested in the Victorian era and read a lot of fiction written during this time period. However, I really didn’t know the history and actual events that led up to and what occurred during the Victorian era, and this podcast is absolutely filling in that gap. I have recently been doing a lot of highway driving and I always make sure that before I leave, I have a good number of these podcasts downloaded to listen to on my long trips. I find them fascinating.
Bravo Chris! Thank you for the thorough research and the time you take, not only investigate all of the details and provide different perspectives, but also to give us a glimpse of everyday life and not letting us forget that Victorian’s were people who were going through a lot of change and that it wasn’t always rosy. I can easily give this podcast a 5 out of 5!
