Editorial Reviews

An intriguing grab bag of brief guides to a variety of subjects across science, culture, politics, and history. With crisp and well-enunciated narration from actress Ellouise Rothwell set alongside thematically appropriate music, these are accessible introductions to subject as diverse as Guy Fawkes Day, astronomy, and the Bermuda Triangle. Listeners are likely to find a good mix between subjects they're more familiar with and stories that are new, and families trapped on long car rides together will appreciate the diverse appeal across generations.

Excellent Compilation

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.
