Very Good Coverage of Virginia History Topics

The podcast covers a variety of common and delightfully obscure vignettes of Virginia history. The presenter either speaks himself or interviews people knowledgeable about the episode’s topic. I have found all the episode’s interesting, even as a person who prides himself on the depth and breadth of his knowledge of the Commonwealth’s history. My only criticism is that sometimes the musical interludes between segments are rather odd choices, ie, heavy metal music during an episode dealing with Virginia’s pre-Revolutionary history.

Outstanding

I enjoy these podcasts very much. Well written and interesting. At first the musical interludes were head-scratching for me, but I’ve come to enjoy them. Is the narrator also the writer?
