Helen Hattab was excellent, she should have her own podcast.

Great stuff

I discovered this podcast only last year, but have now binge-caught-up. My own studies of philosophy inside a history degree were fascinating but random and gappy. I have loved following this series. My 10-year old daughter says you should “use ostriches and not just giraffes”, but apart from this giraffocentric bias, this is a wonderful combination or erudition and humorous insight.
