Great podcast

It’s like being in a classroom and listening to your favourite professor talk about the subjects he is most passionate about. Easy to understand and very detailed.

Can’t tell if professor knows what he’s talking about

I wanted this to be a really good podcast, and it does *sound* like a really good podcast, mostly. This professor seems to have a huge amount of detailed knowledge about his specific field of study. However… he also doesn’t understand what polytheism or cultural appropriation are, to pull two surprising examples from the podcast (there may be more in later episodes). If he doesn’t understand basics like that, how can people be sure whatever else he says is well-researched and accurate? I almost wonder if he’s using a podcast format so he doesn’t have to deal with being questioned or corrected. Excitedly subscribed, sadly unsubscribed.

My new favorite podcast

This is a fantastic podcast. As intelligent as a lecture but as entertaining as a great history podcast! This is the best podcast in the whole world. I keep coming back to it I wish I could find more like it but I just can’t.
