Great!

Interesting little snippets of Scottish history. The stories are really brought to life and are really easy to follow unlike some dry retellings, and the production quality is super. Love it guys!

Listen now, you won’t regret it

Great writing, superb pacing, tightly scripted, beautifully scored, insanely immersive.

Be amazed, shocked, enthralled, disgusted, terrified and more, all in the time it takes to make a club sandwich.
