Excellent content and presentation

This is the first podcast I’ve felt compelled to review, even though I’ve enjoyed many over the years.

I feel very grateful that someone with the host’s incredible hands-on and academic knowledge; calm, meticulous, and open demeanor; and obvious passion has decided to spend his time sharing his expertise with us.

It’s hard to overstate the care and craftsmanship that goes into the episodes and the accompanying website pages. Also, for me, it’s simply a pleasure to relax with and learn from such a gracious host.

(I can’t believe he doesn’t already have his PhD in this stuff!)

Great podcast

Just love this. Have listened to several audio books and this is just as good or better. Can’t wait to listen to more.

My Favorite Podcast Ever

Just started, and it’s already my favorite podcast. If you want to learn about Egypt’s history with a splash of mythology, then this is for you.

I have a MFA in film and this was easy to understand even with very little knowledge of ancient Egypt. If there were an equivalent for podcasts, I would give this “show” an Emmy for best narrative and history reference.

What a gem!
