This is a splendidly researched and excellently produced show. It presents and contextualizes the most important people, events, and inventions during the Victorian era! Great history that is well presented and diligently researched!
Chris values detail and the human experience in his podcast telling, and it makes his show a gem. He's a delight to listen to.
The cadence of the host is just rather stilted. It makes it hard for me to get any information out of what he is saying.
