I Love these podcasts

I've been a long time fan of the website, but I really like hearing it spoken even better. The information is great as always, but hearing the Irish accent makes you feel like you are actually there. Even though many of the stories are not about my specific ancestors, I feel like it brings them to life for me. I can understand what their lives could have been like and it connects me with all the people and the Irish culture. Thank you so much for helping me discover so much of my Irish heritage.
