Good content, production and release FAR too slow

The back catalog kept me busy for a while but once I finished it I was disappointed to realize that he only releases an episode every so often, and the recent one was 9 minutes long.

What's the deal?! I understand the busy life that would come with being a professional historian, so maybe that's what it is... but I demand more. Please make more. Pretttttyyy please?
Thanks, and I look forward to your next episode in 2-3 months.
Apologies for the snark in advance

It’s fine for what it is

I found this through the Gilles De Rais episode and it’s okay. The episode is brief and the narrator has an odd flow that breaks in places that don’t make sense. Beyond that his emphasis on certain subjects gives me the distinct impression that he’s a very religious man. De Rais was a sexual sadist who preyed on boys but according to this he only did it to make a pact with satan for more money? There’s a strong Sunday school vibe I can’t shake. Not bad overall but lacking detail, weirdly narrated, and a little too fire n brimstone preacher.

Disappointing

I was doing a search for podcasts on Scottish history and stumbled across this show. Maybe I just picked a bad episode to listen to, but the narrator is clearly reading a script and honestly does not sound very interested in his topic. I listened to the episode in Edinburgh Castle and he didn’t even try to scratch the surface - a castle has been sitting on Castle Rock since the 12th century, in what is arguably the most haunted city in Europe, and he could barely come up with 3 minutes of material??
