"The History show which decided to take the "exhaustive" route. The subject, Great Britain, is both wide and clearly defined. The host makes a great job dealing with the gap in our actual knowledge of some places and chapter of history while managing to make the whole lot sound friendly and understandable. I love little notes of humour like the sheep in the pasture sound or the "Personal Jesus" goth invasions. Great also if you are a fan of The Last Kingdom. :) "

"Telling the story of the people of Britain through history, the podcast does a good job of telling the story of many people in a captivating way. It does its problems, particluarly in the post-Roman period when a lack of sources and a thousand small kingdoms makes it hard to follow the overarching narrative, but it does mostly a good job of trying to make up for those problems with a deeper dive into the life of the people of the period."
