I love all the information in these podcasts. The depth that Newt goes into for historical figures, for instance, well I feel I should be taking notes. Amazing!

Interesting and worthwhile, but terrible audio quality that has not improved since the beginning. Listen to Episode 6 at the 3 minute mark and tell me what the point of publishing that episode was.
