Hi Indy, I really appreciate the show! I have also been in touch with Flow with some suggested sources, but have a question for you all. You suggested recently in a comment on how best to be engaged with history, that it is most important to see it as real, involving real people. And you end almost every video by reminding us of the massive terrible suffering and slaughter which took place every day in the Great War, inflicted by people on other people. We watch your content - about 20 minutes a week - and yet to create it, you and the team must be immersed in this every day, now for over a year, and with two and a half years to go... Even though we all experience the war second hand, how do you cope metally with its dreadful reality day after day?Answered 1 year ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Are the background music/tunes in the episodes created by the team or from other works? Some don't appear to be used as often now as earlier episodes although I've noticed new ones. In general the sound is great. Is it David who does this alone, or someone else too?Answered 1 year ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
You've mentioned the word 'casualties' in several episodes where it sounds like you're not talking about people who where killed. Does 'casualty' in a war setting refer to the loss of a fighting-fit man, and not necessairly an actual death?Answered 1 year ago. Question posted by Anonymous.

This is the same question from reddit but a bit funnier - maybe you want to take that one: Just a weird quick question, but who are you guys? professors or just WW1 buffs who wanted to share knowledge, am I going to end up in a cult if I watch this?Answered 1 year ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
