I had never listened to a podcast before in my life before I decided to finally dive into this new world with the Distinguished Lives series. I am now an avid listener and am thrilled to have taken that leap! I have listened to all 3 episodes, and they continue to just get better and better.
The host of the series, Mr. Raffe Gold, is amazing, politely probing into the lives of those lost to history with his articulate and provocative questions. The guests and their stories are always interesting, engrossing, and educational. I learn something new every time I tune into this incredibly important series.
Honestly, I doubt I will expand my new found podcast habit beyond that of Distinguished Lives, but one thing is certain, I don't intend to ever miss an episode of this particular program. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone who enjoys, not only, a great show, but also, becoming privy to those juicy secrets of history which are typically hidden from society.
Thanks for a great introduction into the world of podcasts, and keep up the great work!
