Exceptional podcast

Without a doubt the best history podcast I have listened to. Perfect combination of acadamic work and accesible narration. Dominic's storytelling is captivating and he has a very podcast friendly voice to listen to. The Cast has perfect pacing all the way up to the warrior kings of the 18th dynasty. Now it is a bit stuck on the golden kings, but its still an amazing story with still so much to come!
Dominic, you rock!

best podcast and best host ever

I love this podcast! As long as I have known I was obsessed with the mysteries of ancient Egypt. I wrote a paper on it when I was 10 and anytime I was near a museum with a mummy I had to be there. Since I was listening to other entertaining podcast I thought to myself: maybe there is an podcast about ancient Egypt? I found this and I have not stopped listening days on end, weeks even! Dear mister Perry you are the best and I would love to meet you one day!!
Everybody should listen to this from the first episode!
