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!

misophonia? give it a miss

too much extraneous noise and general stuff going on. you dont have to be opening and closing doors and talking to the public to tell me about dinosaurs.

Our Feathered Friends!

Having been a bit critical of some of these podcasts because they really didn't tell me much about subjects that I knew very little about this came as a really refreshing change. It has depth, a Dino version of Prof Brian Cox and most importantly some real depth without ever getting too nerdy.

Thoroughly recommended!

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.

A super story read beautifully.

Professor Garrod has a rich and engaging voice and the story of the rise and fall of the dinosaurs is exciting and surprising. Who knew, for example, that those terrible lizards in the Jurassic Park kitchen were not velociraptors?
