Right Hon!

Hello from Houston, TX! Superb opening episodes so far and the Robert Walpole episodes really help me understand the world view in which George Frideric Handel made money in the London stock market while writing operas and oratorios! Cannot wait for the next episodes! Especially what Lord north was up to besides being that guy who said “Dear God it’s all over” in our history textbooks. And looking forward to more of Podcat research and Dogcast legal antics.

Ooooh

Love that the rexy format is evolving and we have three hosts! I can’t wait to learn about how the prime ministers work, and finally make sense of the British way of governance!
