Always very interesting and straight to the point

This is a very interesting podcast that has a tight run time and gets straight to the point.

There aren’t ten minutes of commercials before the actual episode starts. And there isn’t a smug, self satisfied host who isn’t funny and makes a lot of bad jokes. In a lot of other podcasts that claim to be academic, the long commercials before the start of the show and the lack of wit on an otherwise smart person can really obscure what should be an interesting show.

Here, you have a show that gets straight to the point, and a host who develops a thoughtful, interesting show on a variety of topics. I’ve learned a lot about history from listening and I look forward to learning more.

Pretty good, except for awful theme music

Michael Robinson is a decent interviewer, especially compared to most of those who work for the New Books in History podcast. As long as he sticks to asking questions about the explorer and the expedition in question, it's good. But when he asks an author a question such as, "So how was writing this book different from the other writing you've done?" my reaction is, who gives a phuq? That's not what I'm here to find out. The music for the show is bad. The intro is boring. The closing music is unpleasant and irritating.

Always interesting

I often look at the guest and wonder if this particular podcast is going to be worthwhile. However, Michael's insightful questions and rapport with the guests always leaves me pleased that I listened. Highly recommended.
