Fascinating

Effortlessly learnt a lot of very interesting history. Interaction between presenters meant the episodes remained fresh. Looked forward to coming back for more

interesting and entertaining what's not to like

in our modern technology driven age it is very beneficial to connect with the past and realise that we aren't as bright as we thought and the value of ancient wisdom . Thought and hopefully habit privoking

Seriously!

A great idea for a series which could have provided much interesting material.
However, the inspiration was let down by poor execution.

For example in one episode a presenter lacked the time management / organisation skills to competently complete the task she was given - and ended up recording herself resorting to listening to a self hypnosis tape on a bus journey, on which she then managed to fall asleep and miss her stop.

I have downloaded and enjoyed many good Audible podcasts. Maybe I have taken them for granted and now I should go back to give them reviews to support the excellent, thought provoking material provided by the teams behind them. This series was so poor by comparison it has prompted me to put my thoughts down for others to read for the first time, so maybe some good has come out it after all!

Quite entertaining

It was quite fun and entertaining but not the best podcast on audible, won't be coming back to this one. But it certainly made chores more pleasant.

Warm hosts and witty banter

really enjoyed this show and i wish there's a second series on the way. The cast feels very at ease with each other they give good insights while keeping it light.
