I’ve been listening to the podcast for about 2 months. I started on V1E1 and am now up to V3E40. Each episode is filled with fascinating content and Chris does an amazing job of producing and presenting. Between the content itself, Chris’ Cockney accent, speed of speaking, and his diction, Chris keeps the listener engaged from beginning to end. Without a doubt, this is one of the best history podcasts that I’ve run across.
Excellent Podcast 🌎😊👍🏼
I just finished listening to Volume 2 and I can wait until I start V3 - Was looking to get into listening to a podcast worth my time and this is as good as it gets!!! Chris does an excellent job - keep up it up and thank you for all that you do.
