A useless stub

2 stars for good audio quality. While the interviews offered some good insights, they were quite insufficient as a full podcast. Given Oxford’s reputation in archaeology, they would have done well in producing a real podcast, and interspersed these interviews between the main episodes. The general public does not know these interviewees. First give them knowledge about archaeology in the form of lectures. That would make them more excited about the insights that individual archaeologists have to offer.
