Update - can't stop thinking about this podcast
I still don't know what to think of this podcast. It draws me in that is for certain, but it is incredibly dark and dare I say disturbing. I have to say I am frustrated about the subscription model. I would gladly pay ala carte for many episodes. Despite this I did subscribe for the Dark Histories episodes. These are all incredibly unique. Three are among the best podcasts I have ever listed to and Ihave over 4,000 podcasts on my computer! The three are: Ancient Africa, Edge of the Earth and Hiroshima. Of the three Ancient Africa is astounding. First, I wish Harbour would put out a complete audio rendition of Herodotous. Nobody has made these stories so accessible and truly enchanting. I would pay $100 at least for this! An essential component of this is Harbour's music and audio. It is beyond perfect and I wish I knew how he did it. Does he produce the music himself, use existing music or both? Does he have a sound studio? From ancient instruments to what seems to be synthesized music and sounds, it is absolute perfection. Oh, another Dark History episdoe that is quite intriguing is Gulag, but sadly I have read the actualy story/book this is based on was fabricated.
