Literature and History

Fantastic series. Can’t thank you enough. Glad to see you are still making new episodes. I am recently retired so have plenty of time to enjoy your knowledge and wit.

thanks for the metal ,

Truly inspirational

This is one of the best podcasts out there. I’ve listened to a ton of podcasts once past year while working (there’s nothing better than getting paid while educating myself). Literature and History is one of the best, and easily the best overall production. The songs are truly inspirational, so much so that I’m writing my own song. Naturally it is based on Deuteronomy 23:1 which Literature and History has covered so well. Keep up the good work!
