Interesting topics and guests, but why does the host sound like a robot?

Fantastic. Absorbing. Nerdy (in the best possible way)!

This podcast appeared in a Pandora search for history podcasts, and I started listening from the beginning. I love it! It is pretrty much unvarnished academic history delivered by an over the top enthustiastic, smart, well-educated, history-loving nerd except for the goofy and IMO kind of unnecessary sound effects that signal the "Time Warp" segment. I'm still llistening to 2015 programs, and I hope the show does not lose all the qualities I love about it as the host gets more sophisticated.
