  1. Even as a teenage girl, you're still a really gripping narrator! Thank you for the new series, I'm enjoying hypothesizing about what the broader theme might be.

  2. Your whole series has been great, from the beginning. I've been hitting Roman, Byzantine, and English history pretty hard (Duncan, Pierson, and Crowther, respectively), and I found myself wondering, hey, what was happening before all this stuff? Your podcast was the perfect resource. Great content, and a very nice style! It's a pleasure that I see a bazillion episodes still to enjoy.
