  • Hey thee great podcast, just wondering the music you played after you finished the Battle of Brettenfield, was that the beret field them from Euroa universalis IV. It sounds quite similar.

  • Hey Zack, just finished this episode and I have to say it was by far the best you have ever produced. The show is getting more polished and professional, and I loved the touching story in the last five minutes. You are my gateway to history. Keep it up.

  • I'm an English expat living in Sweden, and you're right about Gustavus Adolphus Day still being celebrated - Gustav Adolfsdagen - and it's particularly big in Gothenburg since he founded the current city (there were previous incarnations, but they tended to get destroyed by the Danes or Norwegians). In Sweden as a whole one does need to check, when seeing a Vasa-something or Gustav-something, which Gustav it refers to since Gustav I gets pretty much equal billing, due to his status as liberator of Sweden from the Union of Kalmar.

  • As a Spanish-speaker who is preparing to take TOEFL and GRE standarized test, I am just delighted for your use of English language. I can finally understand English words -such as turpid, piecemeal, alacrity- in context, which makes them easier to remember. Keep the good work, and I'll demand my right to buy you a cup of coffee at Starbucks if I visit Ireland.
