Great show

Just love it.

Absolutely marvellous

My fascination with this podcast-series is twofold. First I am a fool for history in a broader sense and when it is told by a person who really is interested in the topic it gives the listener that little extra. David is really burning through. Second (and this is maybe slightly potty, as David would say) I am enjoying the spoken english and the wast vocabulary of the british-english language. Sorry. I can't help it. I'm only danish.
