Love this podcast

Can’t tell you how much I look forward to each podcast of Seekers and Scholars. These are so well crafted, so well researched. They come off as naturally as one might speak to another, but the thought behind each one is obvious.

This most recent one, on Concord, was a special interest to me because I purchased the first version and have had several more since, including the newest.

Thank you so much for this informative and sprightly discussion.

Great women’s history

As a fellow podcaster and a women’s historian, I find this podcast incredibly compelling and engaging. The guests brought onto the show are superb and they tell a really powerful history.

Fantastic podcast

I have found this podcast fascinating. Even episodes where I think I’m not particularly interested in the topic of the episode, they manage to make it interesting and I find myself wanting to know more. The host does an excellent job too.
