Too good for commuting

This podcast is so great, that I never listen to it in the daily commute. I save the episodes for long walks in the weekend.

Fantastic and well narrated

This show is hosted by Doug (I think he called) who is both very knowledgeable and a great communicator. Although he gives you the choice not to follow his version of the interpretation of the stories he present (he does that by sectioning the site into very clear parts) I strongly recommend you listen to the entire show. He is a fantastic interpreter and more often than not the interpretation is both somewhat surprising and well argumented for. So all in all great show. I could do without the songs though, but.... Well I just fast forward or fastly skip to next chapter in the podcast to learn more.
