I have an armchair interest in archaelogy and find this pod to be terrific. I find the topics interesting all be it a bit brief; and I like the NEWS format. Laura Kelly is a great presenter although I could do without the intro. If you are interested in checking out a pod on archaeology I would give this one a try. A great program where all the "NEWS is HISTORY".
A great podcast. Very well presented and great information
I've stopped listening because of the too long intro. Instead I tap on the details and read the original article. Generally shorter than wading through the intro.
