What a treat!

I am one of those young dinosaur enthusiasts who never grew out of it, so this was a real treat for me! Well researched and accessible, a really fascinating listen. I hope there will be more episodes to come!
My favourite is Baryonyx!

Loved this

Really interesting and accessible with a great presenter. His 'Chris Pratt' moment was superb! Was disappointed by his little lecture at the end about us killing the planet. Preaching to the choir... But we'll worth (several) listens.

Dino-mite!

This series was absolutely amazing! I binged the entire series it was so good. The narration was excellent, the information contained was eye opening, and the warning at the end was extremely poignant. Definitely worth a listen.
