Elevates on Human and Academic Levels

Love the podcast! It scratches both the academic itch looking for experts’ research and analysis, as well as the human itch of connecting to these authors and what their writing means. I lived for four year in Utah and have generations of ancestors and dozens of close family in the Intermountain West, and your podcast helps me connect to those roots. Keep up the great work!!

Great exposure to books and scholars

I love regional academic/historical podcasts but most are focused on the East Coast, which really doesn’t interest me since I am a born and raised Westerner. I was so excited to discover this podcast... the topics are all interesting, the host and the authors are well-spoken and conversational, and the books have almost all gone on my “to read” list. My only complaint is there aren’t enough episodes (yet)! Looking forward to listening to more.
