  1. I’m very late to the party here as I’m just now at this episode.

    I came here for the narrative history, but these sideshow episodes are so well done. I seriously love the short & sweet histories of whole nations, and the episodes on various bits about life, dress, economy, etc.

    The biggest compliment I can give is that I see you as the second coming of James Burke, my very favorite media presenter of all time.

    1. Thanks Nathan, that’s lovely of you. But James Burke…there’s a blast from the past! We loved James Burke too. I couldn’t possibly measure up to him, but it’s a lovely compliment.
      I love researching the European episodes too; so important to put everything in context.
      Hope you keep enjoying the podcast, and thanks for listening
