Not bad

I am a genius titanic kid who knows way more than all you other raters and I knew everything that they talked about in the podcast. I am awesome. Plus the woman’s voice is so ugly. I hated it. And most of the facts were just WRONG. whoever produced this junk was a idiot.

Titanic passenger focus is interesting

I enjoyed the variety of people this podcast highlights from steerage to trendsetters to the wealthy. It was great fun to tie it together with a recipe that had a connection to the episode. Great driving experience for Titanic buffs.
