  • Good content- too many commercials

    I really enjoy the history discussed in this podcast but there are a lot of long disruptive commercials. They interrupt content and are loud compared with the content.

  • How many years before the mic is upgraded? After years of being a supporter on patron I'm giving up waiting. I mistakenly thought I was supporting this podcast on its way up, but I don't understand why none of that money has resulted in the quality improving. It sounds a lot like talk radio quality. Like it's being phoned in from 1991.

  • A traditional Irish nationalist narrative

    An Irish nationalist narrative with an added chip-on-the-shoulder. The episode on Cromwell would have benefitted from a broader historical perspective and questioning, rather than re-enforcing a sense of nationalist victimhood about events of 400 years ago. To be fair, some of the content is original research, notably a couple of multi-part mini-series.

  • Sorry I don’t got a title

    If American people are listening,that’s how Irish people sound. PS in Ireland, that’s how Irish people create their voice in the podcasts.
