Such a wealth of Renaissance knowledge!

I stumbled across this podcast in search of Art and History - I couldn’t have been more excited! The Renaissance podcast has so much wonderful information and life stories about these incredible artists. I knew nothing about these individuals before the podcast and I’ve been hooked since I came across it just a mere week ago! I highly recommend this podcast and hope the owner releases new episodes soon!
