One of the Best!!

Oddly enough, I have only recently discovered the joys of listening to podcasts. I just never had thought much about them. In the last few months, I’ve been looking up my favorite subjects - and I discovered this podcast ! Love it! Carol gives the listener a really thorough history lesson—she does his homework!! And I absolutely love the topics! She puts a lot of thought and tons of great historical facts in these podcasts! I’m hooked!

Fantastic Podcast

She gives you lots of igreat interesting info in a fun, lively manner. I subscribe to a few Tutor & History Podcasts and this is one of my favorites. I actually heard her on another podcast (Tudor) and thought her interview was so great I went & downloaded her podcast. It's a keeper!
