Definitely Missed That in Class

Grateful the way Holly and Tracey thoughtfully weave together such an interesting tapestry of topics each week. High quality research and presentation time after time on subjects I most definitely missed out on in history class. Thanks for expanding my pool of knowledge, ladies!

Annoying hosts

The premise is great, but these are two of the most annoying women I've ever heard. Please dump the current hosts and I'll start downloading on a regular basis.

Great Topics, Terrible Hosts.

This podcast is just like listening to a sorority girl and her jock friend flirt and stumble through quasi-history lessons and trying to compel more people to traffic their site...Actually, it's just like that.
