    Hi, my name's Jane and I live in Portland, Oregon, originally from North Carolina. I'm a librarian so I appreciate the research that goes into the podcast, especially when Jamie mentioned the importance of reading footnotes. I also love history (not just English history) and podcasts; I went through the 12 Byzantine Rulers podcast in about a weekend, which I don't recommend. I enjoy a lot of British comedy shows and I have a weakness for Masterpiece Theater, every American does, right?

    A fellow PDXer!  Welcome, Jane! :)I'm curious, was it that you just went through Lars' material too quickly and you don't recommend blitzing through it, or did you take issue with the podcast itself?

    I went through them too quickly! All I remember is that Byzantine rulers really seemed to enjoy killing each other and family members. His Norman history podcast is also interesting.PDX rules!

    Haha!  True enough!  :)I wish I had more time for podcast listening, and Lars' Norman Centuries has been on my list for quite a while, but I just don't have the time with all the prep putting this together takes.
