I have been listening to this podcast since 2016. I am a sailor and this podcast has been my go-to listening for night watches across 2 oceans. My fave episode is the one about birdman, the worst is the one about Marie Delphine, vile woman. The earlier shows were amazing, they have gotten a bit fluffier since the team has grown but I still listen every week and I often hear gems. Thanks Aaron and team for all your research and Aaron... Hi!

The historicical information in this Podcast is great. A lot of good information. However, there is a serious issue mixing fact with opinion without noting it. For example, in one of the casts it's stated that, "She threw herself on the pyre, PROBABLY because men didn't want her to collect the inheritance." This kind of opinionated wokery is scattered throughout many of the casts. It takes away from the real history and story being told.

in secondary school, me, my friend and a teacher made a joke about monkey fishes being a thing. so I went on to research it to prove it was a thing (to add to the joke) I found the sea monkey and stopped my research.

wow so many people roasting this show in here. I love ahrons voice and story telling. I love the music too this is by far one of my favorite podcasts. if I had any complaints it would be that they are a bit short and that this would be perfect to fall asleep to if not for the ads( maybe there's an add free stream on patreon or something if that's the case that's fair i didn't look). anyway just wanted to balance out the negative reviews because I think he does a great job
