Ben is a great host, funny and knowledgable

He has a sense of humour, like all my favourite podcast hosts, doesn't take himself too seriously, unlike some hosts I could name but won't, and most of all his research is thorough and pretty extensive. Now I don't agree with him all the time but that makes me think again about my interpretations and opinions - which is why I listened to 40some different podcasts.
Give it a shot, I bet you come back and rate like I did.
Oh, and you gotta love a podcast that starts with geography lesson of Europe!
