History with a view!

I love history and the medieval time period is harder to research due to the lack of accountable documentation. When I found this podcast I was a little skeptical but after a few episodes I was impressed. The presenter makes the information digestible and is inflective enough to keep things rolling. All in all if you like history and enjoy learning about strange stuff...give it a shot! I like it and subscribed anyway!

Such a different look!

This is a great narrative podcast which takes a look at some familiar time periods and cultures in an unexpected way. See medieval cultures through the eyes of visitors and it shows the world has been connected even in the “dark ages”

Great Idea But Needs Better Production

So excited to find this but it is so boring! the subject matter is so great, but the narrator just drones on and on and I can't even. If they punctuated this with pertinant music or varied the tone and narration it would be a lot better. Good luck!
