Fabulous storytelling

Be just listened to the first episode of the King Arthur story and am hugely impressed. I’ve read a lot of King Arthur stories and watched movies/TV shows, and this brought a lot of originality to the story while still keeping a “traditional” feel. I love podcasts in general, and the production quality here is high. I will be going through their back catalog ASAP.
