A little sunshine in my week
I love this podcast because it brightens my week with little bits of sunshine.
Keep up the good work
The highlight of my week!
Thank you for a high quality podcast with global and current archeological finds! I’ve been listening faithfully for years, your content and voices are so relaxing and informative.
i have been listening to this podcast for years...and i love it. simply love it. it’s a joy every time a new episode drops. makes me wish i had stayed in grad school and finished that archeology degree.
however, like a previous reviewer had mentioned...i do not need the political slant. not that it’s found in every episode, but i have noticed it more of late. i understand there are real politics at play in some stories, but i’m so sick by how everything has become a political issue or transformed into one. it creeps into every aspect of life now. please, not here. Trump. racial injustice. walls. etc.
that being said...still love this podcast, and other than that hiccup, it’s still the best out there.
