Fergie V. ,

In-depth story of the Mongol Empire

Well-written and detailed story of the Mongol Empire. I specially like the simplicity of the style of presentation, no pretentious affectations of speech, and other predictable podcast “musts” that afflict many podcasts (especially big outfits).

Fascinating details

Deep investigation of primary sources with engaging presentation. Good complement to the (also excellent) Timur Podcast covering some of the same period.

Nph12 ,

Good consistency bro

Keep getting these out bro, good work
