So many Historical Topics

Really enjoyable history podcast that covers so many different topics. Always a good listen.
The Down the Pub shows add some good fun to the mix.
Also haven’t had any big issues with audio quality. I work in a loud shop and with earbuds in haven’t had an issue
Keep up the great work!!!

Only two popes not Italian?

Listening to today’s podcast regarding Princes in the Renaissance. The guest lecturer stated that there were only 2 non-Italian popes. All credibility was lost at that point. What about the Borgias? Obviously there are more. Even if Wikipedia is 3/4 wrong, there are still more than 2 non-Italian popes. I want so much to like this podcast... between the audio problems, the often crass commentary, and now this... makes it difficult to take this podcast seriously. I will say that I enjoy walking down memory lane with the Sharp cast, as that is one of my all times series. But more often than not I am left really disappointed after listening.

Good Listen - Something for Everyone

I really enjoy this podcast. Keep listening and you could hear about almost every conceivable issue/time/whatever in history. They get knowledgeable people. They have fun. (Sometimes a little smutty.) I always learn something. It’s always entertaining. Pick and choose if you like, but some of the episodes where I thought, hmmmm, that doesn’t sound interesting, were the most fascinating. Give a listen and learn something. And laugh. Thanks Alex and Alina!
