  1. Ugggghhhhha….David! After about a year of listening straight through all the HOE podcasts I’ve unfortunately caught up. What am I going to do now that I can’t listen to 5-10 episodes per week? You might have to hire a crack staff to pump out more episodes quicker. Although it will be tough to find people as talented as yourself to keep up the quality. Thank you for getting me through long commutes and (sort of) long runs with your brilliant podcasts. I hope I may even by smarter by now.

    Oh well, on to History of Scotland and the other shedcasts.

    1. Matthew I feel the same way. Being a couple of months new to the podcast, I’m actually at Episode 69 or so, but have simultaneously been listening to the more current episodes dealing with the Tudors. It’s a bit schizophrenic, but I’m enjoying it immensely. My fear is when I can’t do it anymore. Weird, but true. How does one wait a week or two, without something new?

      1. I’m getting my fix on Members Only podcasts but soon that well will dry up…or at least slow to a relative trickly compared to listening every day.

        I’ve discovered other podcasts through David’s recommendations and one or two seem to be nearly as good, but of course will never match HOE.

        Try “When Diplomacy Fails.” It’s great so far, but with something like 8 years of podcasts on that feed it is sometimes overwhelming. That podcaster spends maybe 10-20 episodes on one event so pick one you are interested in and start there.

  2. Dear David – in May 2019 I broke my neck in a surfing accident and have been enduring a long recovery- made much more enjoyable (if that is the right term to describe partial paralysis and constant physical therapy etc) by my discovery of your masterpiece of historical podcasting!!! Your detail and inimitable and highly entertaining style (including random references to Led Zep etc) have kept me sane and motivated while providing countless hours of enjoyment! I am now a shed cast member all caught up on the HOE series and encourage you to continue your excellent work as we your loyal listeners wait in anxious anticipation for each new episode.
    Aloha and mahalo from a devoted listener !!!

    1. Michael so sorry to hear of your injury; how terrifying that must have been, and so sorry you are left with permanent injury. I am glad managed to help in some small way and keep you company.

  3. SO LOVE this podcast, and your most excellent work – hoping you are continuing to recover and feeling more spry (is that a word?)… I already plan to just start all over when I finish..

    Enjoyed listening to the Angelo Saxon bit over again as well. Take good care. You are loved.
