Love it!

I'm always on the lookout for podcasts on archaeology and I'm so glad I saw a tiktok about this one. The host is super passionate and knowledgeable about the topics. Sound quality is great. What more can you ask for?

I’m so excited for this!

I first heard of Dr. Tenn from Styxandbones (store & podcast), and I’m beyond excited that she is doing her own podcast. This woman knows her facts!
