This podcast is great! The episodes aren’t long. The host delivers interesting facts without drawing out mundane details. My only complaint is the intro music. I don’t know why but it drives me crazy. However, that doesn’t take away from the overall quality of the podcast and I give it five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Excited to have found this podcast!
