TNA podcast: Hidden treasures? Uncovering maps among the files of government

This is a podcast I wish I could recommend. The speaker, Andrew Janes, is clearly knowledgeable on the maps in the TNA collection. The people who attended the presentation in December were fortunate.

BUT

The key visuals are not available, so with the audio its a bit like having music or art described without being able to hear or see it -- a much impoverished experience.

Andrew Janes appears to be speaking very quickly, hardly pausing for breath. I even wondered if the audio had been processed to speed up the presentation and eliminate silences longer than a few milliseconds. When combined with a fairly pronounced accent following along becomes a trial.
