Great history

Best part of this series is the fact the host allows her guests the time to tell their stories.

Love the Podcast

I love this podcast it is so educational and entertaining at the same time . People find me crazy because I am have this fascination with history especially colonial America and the revolutionary war and my idea of a good time is reading a good history book or biography of one of our founding fathers or listening to this podcast ! Thank you Liz for starting this podcast for us history lovers !
