Ok

I would love this so much more if the delivery was more natural. The tone/delivery is borderline cringey at times. Neat concepts and interesting material, but this takes away from it for sure. A lot of time is also spend encouraging ppl to review in every episode. We get it.

Beware of Errors

One must be aware of facts that are so loosely tossed out in this podcast. In the Christopher Columbus episode, Melissa voiced a startling fact about his last voyage in 1504: “If they had sailed along Panama just a little further, they would have passed through the Panama Canal.” Yes, the canal was apparently operating in 2504.
