Good Info

Chip has sort of an “old fashioned” tellling of these stories. Which means lists of dates and Generals names not so big on the delatil - which I sort of like as a review of the events.
He is not the most engaging storyteller of the age ever, but does a creditable job I like the wayHe has selected the”great events” menu.
One thing - Chip please either reduce the volume / duration of your musical accents in foreground and background- or get rid of it altogether! Please !
I have to fast fwd every time the music comes in 😬
That said I enjoy your efforts here - I hope you keep it up -
Thanks

Outstanding Context & Volume Mix

His effort to offer a contextual analysis of the events of the time period, the essential characteristics of the main players (as understood then and now) and reasons why the battle significantly changed the course of world history is without measure. Dan Carlin concentrates on the individual feelings of fright, and horror on the actors of the time. Chip does this too, but he also goes to a higher level of analysis of the effects of the battle on national or world history. It is especially interesting to hear his thougths on what would have been the effect of the battles if they had gone the other way. The sound effects, and music enhance the podcast except for the sound level mixing. Chips voice is very easy to listen to but I have to rip off my earphones when any music is played.

The music volume level is WAY WAY above that of his voice. If you turn down your volume to make the music safe to listen to you cannot hear his voice. If you turn the volume up to hear his voice clearly, the music and the sound effects blast me out. Also when he speaks over the music, which is an enjoyable presentation technique, his voice blend with the music is not lound enough to be heard clearly over the music.
Keep up the fire.!!

Great podcast

Please do more episodes of this podcast. This is of the best on military history. I just discovered it and have already listened to every one at least twice. Waiting with anticipation for a new battle.
