I love it! Woot woot! You are making more!

Make more please! My favorite is the trivia style one.
Edit: you are making more! I’m so happy. Thank you. I love the sound of your voice in this series very nice and different than the other shows

CMHobgood ,

Relax and Learn!

Great podcast! Where current history conveys such atrocities and struggle, this is an view of history that “connects historical dots” in pleasing, surprising ways. For example, try the “Rubber” episode!

Treechic ,

Interesting topics but won’t keep you awake

Harrison reads in a calm and relaxing manner. I hope this podcast continues. Please make more!
