Supreme Imperator ,

Superb host

I started listening to Viking Age Podcast, and the host really grated on me and the content went way too granular. I looked around for other options and found this, and wow, it’s great - really nicely done! The host is likeable, humble and relatable. I find the podcasts very interesting and have helped me learn a great deal about the Vikings. Thank you! Keep up the great work!
