Great Pod

Very interesting podcast, entertaining for anyone who enjoys history. Definitely does a good job of trying to portray the personality of the people he speaks about.

Follows the best history format

This is a very good podcast about interesting lesser known events in history, presented in my favorite format: One person delivering well researched information about people places and things. Stephen has a clear calm voice that does not distract from the subject matter. This allows the listener to embed themselves in the story from beginning to end.

I’m often saddened by other podcasters who drown their own unique content in an unfortunate and distracting format, usually two dudes riffing and laughing, or a guy and a girl injecting their own opinions into what becomes a long and inefficient way of presenting content.

Written in Blood is up there with Dan Carlin, Mike Duncan, Paul Cooper and Nitin Sil. 4 stars!

Urge that ,

Better with each episode

As you go it’s more polished, better moderated tone. It’s a good listen and very informative while not being 5 hours long.
