I agree with everything said here, including being lost on the first part of this era and now sad to see it coming close to the end.
I’ve also recently caught up on the feed and I’m already considering relistening to the entire anglo Saxon period while waiting for more episodes to stack up. I’ve found once I get through a backlog, that ~weekly drip on history podcasts gets harder for me to follow. The only one I’ve actually taken the time to relisten to is The History of Rome. So BHP, you are History of Rome level re-listen-to-able in my book.
