Great history lesson
I feel like I’m on the match with them. Great history lesson with so much captivating information I never knew before.
With just the write amount of information, excellent organization and presentation, this podcast is one of, if not the best I’ve heard so far. It shows how hard he worked to plan each episode. Thank you!!
This was such a great listen, kept me captivated. This is a great view, as it’s informational and unbiased. Such a rich dive into the depths of the Mongolian practices, and now I’m excited to learn more about Marco Polo! Then Kublai Kahn.
