I Am The Awesome Prussia! ,

Fantastic Podcast

This podcast is so informative and has a lot of wonderful discussion, each of the hosts brings their own unique insight and particular area of knowledge and expertise to the table resulting in a podcast which is entertaining, engaging, and very informative. I only began listening fairly recently and am still working my way through the back catalog of episodes but thus far there hasn’t been a single episode which I haven’t enjoyed. Overall a great listen and very enjoyable.
