A Great Overview of a Fascinating Time

This podcast was quite enjoyable. Up until this point I had only ever been familiar with Ghengis Khan and Kubla Khan.. So to be able to learn about the other Khans was a treat. So if you like to hear about dramatic internal power struggles, diplomatic/political successes and upsets, and a massive dose of warfare - This is the podcast for you!

Unfortunately the creator of the podcast hasn’t released anything else, but maybe one day we’ll hear from them.
