I couldn’t get past the giggling

I couldn’t even get past a couple of episodes. If you like listening to two giggling girls try & talk about history then great this is the podcast for you. As for me, I give it two 👎🏻👎🏻

Enjoying my time listening and discovering

It look lasik and blurry vision to push me into podcast listening vs reading. I’ve greatly enjoyed the five episodes I’ve heard so far. Keep up the great work ladies.
