Excellent Compilation

Any additional comments?

The individual eight minute segments are wonderful, but these compilations are awesome. I hope they keep putting together these hour plus long segments, much easier to collect them all and to listen to.

So Much Information is Brief!

I really love this series! There is so much information in a short time. It is not boring as the narration is great and the information complete. Finding little details that I hadn't heard elsewhere.

Did wonder where volume 5 is - will get it and future volumes!
