Great show!

A variety of interesting topics, presented well by historians with the skill to communicate historical significance and value. Waiting for this years festival to appear as podcasts. Waiting. Still waiting.

An excellent history

As the second reviewer, I'm also wanting more. I don't think they cancelled the festival. The Dan Snow podcast is comparable and he cross promotes this festival

Love listening to all the lectures

I have enjoyed every episode since the beginning of chuck Valley podcast. But it’s been almost a year now since the last episode was put out and I’m quite curious to see what has happened. If anybody can tell me I would be grateful!
