A joy to listen to

Thanks for the fun and informative podcast. I love the format and subjects.
I do like “names and dates” while reading history non-fiction, but these discussions are appealing in another way.
Chapeau!

It’s good

This is a pretty great podcast. I’ve been listening and relistening for years. Adam covers a lot of topics, so I find myself coming back for reference often.
