Another great episode, makes me think of Alfred the Great. which bring to mind a episode topic....Books and their movie version. I am reading a series, The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell which has a Netflix series. As usual, they are so very different. like distant cousins or something. Keep the great episodes coming!!!!

I love your show!! I've listened (or tried to...) other podcasts and they just don't compare. I love fun unknown quirky history facts and think that would be a great topic to hear y'all's thoughts on.
