Please

Disable the notifications on your computer that keep pinging throughout the podcast. It may not bother some but it’s very distracting to me.
Thanks!

Interesting historical fiction

I only had a small inkling of who Emma of Normandy was. I now realize she and other ladies were serious powers in their time. Their memory and legacies were destroyed by individuals (men and women) rewriting the truths of history. Thanks for shining a light on one tough woman!

Underwhelmed

Focus on the actual story at hand. Too many tangents. The narration sounds more like an audiobook than a podcast. Mispronounced names. Too many elaborate, unnecessary metaphors. This story has so much potential but the narration and script is lackluster.
