At first I didn't like the narrator's voice and the fact that it was painfully obvious he was reading short sentences of a paper but, BUT!, the subject of the early Christianity (I've reached the Council of Nicaea in 315 which has a whooping 11 parts dedicated to it) is so vast and complex that I quickly became thankful for the short sentences and the clean narration. I still have a bone to pick with the author's weird inflections at time but I love the series way too much to mind and, as the episodes progressed, his tone became less affected. The effort of documentation put into this Podcast is just amazing.
Lots of history, lots of sidetrack episodes on specific subjects, all told with enthusiasm and humility.
I wanted to like this, I really did. The subject is fascinating, but the podcast suffers from a lot of problems. Foremost are the random order of the topics, which I find difficult to follow (Chronological order isn't required, although it's probably most often the best option. But some sense of why each topic is covered where it is and how they relate is nice.), and the very uncomfortable delivery. The script is read without much enthusiasm or inflection, so it's almost like the podcaster is likely to nod off mid-sentence at any moment. It's just tough to listen to for any length of time.
