Hosted by a trio of intelligent, hard-working gentlemen who have hands on experience in the field, this podcast combines expert guests with fully researched interview questions and comments. Adding to this, the conversations are examples civil public discourse, something sadly lacking in many forms of media today. I have diligently searched for a podcast that focuses on Ancient America (particularly in what is now the southeastern United States), and I have often been disappointed by content that descends into wild speculation.
