Excellent content, style, and production!
Paul Vincent's podcast is a great addition to any history enthusiast's iTunes feed. He combines interesting, well researched and explained content with an appealing mix of irreverence and to-the-point discussion. The production quality of the podcast is good, and his willingness to go back to earlier episodes to improve them is laudable. Recommended!
