Pleased Listener

I have just found this podcast and am very pleased at how great the presentation and the information are about the Richmond area. I just finished the two Maymont podcasts and was thoroughly entertained by the conversation and the new things I learned. Kudos to all who are a part of bringing the history of Richmond to a new audience. I will continue to listen and look forward to the next installment. Many thanks to all who are a part of putting this amazingly informative production together.
