Five stars

I love this podcast! Some biography podcasts are hard to hear and ever harder to sit through. Not these! Thank you- makes my commute so much better!

Great podcast for learning

I learn so much every episode. Very informative, but it flows like a discussion rather than a lecture. Love that you guys always bring on professionals!

Much enjoyed

Matt Smith is a top-notch podcaster. Like his Emperors of Rome ‘cast, this one compiles the expertise of academics to introduce important historical figures. I especially enjoyed the episodes about Australian figures as they’re not part of the curriculum here in the States. No one will ever confuse the work here with one of those towering David McCullough biographies, but the short and sweet format provides a great base layer of understanding of who these people were and why their legacy perseveres.

Informative But Dull

Well-researched, but not particular interesting. Some of the subjects were new to me and very fascinating, but it felt like passion was missing from this project overall.

The best biography podcast I've come across

I love biographies and for a while I struggled to find time to read them so I started looking for podcasts. I have subscribed to a few but this is the only one I keep coming back to for a few reasons ....The figures they cover have always fascinated me but I knew little about them. On the other hand the facts presented are biographic and interesting without becoming mundane. The podcast is well presented and I admire the work done by the heads of departments at La Trobe. Each podcast spices my curiosity to dig even more the particular subject. Every biography is well researched and quite a delight to hear. Thank you and I look forward to hear more.
