Fun, fascinating podcast!!

I recently discovered this podcast and am obsessed with it. Every episode is full of "wow, that's so cool" moments. I admit I'm a bit of a nerd and love history and languages.

The information is always well organized and the host is a very engaging speaker and doesn't veer off into rambling tangents.

I cannot recommend this podcast enough. I love everything about it!!
