Clever and thorough.
A nice summary of things I felt but could never quite put my finger on. Well researched.
Great podcast. Funny hosts and a super fun premise - with fantastic guests.
“People love episode three, that’s where they all come aboard! They heard ‘maritime chronometer’ and they just...let’s do it!”
Yep! At least, that’s what happened to me! I saw the ad for the Titanic episode, and I was hooked. Loved it!
