Thorough and interesting. Kevin Stroud works very hard both in research and quality control. His presentations are deliberately planned always keeping in mind the average-Joe listener. I am an avid podcast-listener and this is my favorite podcast. Although I cannot wait for the next one to come out, sometimes, as a father of 3, I hold off on listening until I can find some time along to listen in peace and truly enjoy it. If you are interested in knowing why English is the way it is and love history, this is the podcast for you!
