    John ‘Mad Jack’ Mytton

    John ‘Mad Jack’ Mytton

    John Mytton is often called an eccentric, but that doesn’t really capture his whole story. Despite his wild behavior, he's something of a local hero, and sometimes a joke, but his life is sort of sad in many ways.

Fun, interesting and knowledgeable

This is my favorite podcast!!
I listen to it while working and I like that I always learn something new.
Thanks to the hosts for making history more approachable, fun and interesting!
(It’s true that the ads increased, but I just skip them :P)

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.

OSURoss ,

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.
