Great work.

A very easy listening podcast. Great delivery of information without overloading the listener.

Great listen

This is an absolutely outstanding listen. A historical podcast whose primary aim is to entertain the facts of history’s most intrepid explorers, but will from time to time, entertain some of the more saucier rumors and intrigue surrounding expeditions and doomed enterprises. Very thorough research and digestible structure.
