Just finished listening to the series on War and Humanity by Margaret MacMillan.

Anyone else listen to this amazing series?

Yes, brilliant!
Paw always rated her highly as a historian but she is an enthralling speaker too.

Isn’t she just Maw? She is so ‘easy’ to listen to, a lovely deep voice and her thoughts flow so gently, yet were very thought provoking

There was a thread recently on intellectual stimulation.
Pity they’re only once a year.

Enthralling & brilliant from me too!

Must admit to not knowingly have heard her before blush
