Amazing!

Such an amazing podcast! It is thorough and informative. I'm a college student getting a degree in history and this podcast has been so insightful and helpful when it comes to writing research papers and such. So, so good!

A must listen

A history podcast can get bogged down in dull details. Thankfully the host is a relatable companion and Dr. Evans is the teacher that everyone wishes they had. I love the occasional detours outside of Roman Emperors and I always feel that a 2 week wait for the next episode is too long.

Entertaining and educational

I've just discovered the podcast and am listenning to three or four episode during my daily commute; I love it. I'm so disapointed there wasnt a Dr. Rhiannon Evans when I was in undergrad; she's smart, engaging, witty and, to be frank, a real babe. Keep it coming!
