What a Gem

This podcast is nice and quick packed with interesting information. Laid out in a easily digestible format. So glad there’s a second season!

It’s gets better and better!

The first two episodes (spoiler) end with the inventors dying in a sorry state of poverty. Thankfully this is not a theme for the podcast. Each episode is a glimpse into a fascinating part of history. Sources provided at the end of each episode of the listener desires to learn more.
