An interesting, entertaining, friendly romp through the detritus of life. Wonderful. Charles - try some poutine (with real cheese curds not mozzarella). It’s marvellous!
EllenSim via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/07/23
My favourite podcast! I love the relationship and cross referencing of information across the three presenters. I am from Towcester, Northants so fairly local to where Charles & Richard come from so love the references to the local areas. Subject suggestion: Red kites. I see them outside...Read full review »

I think the interaction between an eel and a horse will stay with me awhile. All so interesting and diverse Thanks man via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/03/23

Love your podcast. You three are delightful, knowledgeable and an aural delight. 10/10. Thank you.
Melba Kate via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/01/23
I love this Podcast. Three bright, cheerful, intelligent people discussing crazy and diverse subjects. Fabulous! So many (too many) Podcasts are painfully, embarrassingly, boring. This Podcast is riveting. Please don’t change a thing and please, please continue!

I recently found Rabbit Hole Detectives having read Charles Spencer’s article in the Daily Telegraph. I love the episodes which are interesting and enjoyable. The panel are enthusiastic about their subjects and deliver the information in a fun way.
Sue from Plymouth via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/29/23
Much enjoying the various subjects from birds, lighthouses to mistresses of Charles II. Hilarious moments and amiable competition between the presenters. I particularly love references to Northamptonshire, as I’m sure do many listeners, one feels that kinship with locality. Guildhall Road Museum...Read full review »

So interesting. The random subjects and details are really fascinating. Up to date on all episodes - Wednesdays can’t come round quick enough. A great way to pick up on history - a real easy listen.
ChrisF2909 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/29/23
A really fun idea, listening to 3 people with different areas of interest, discussing a whole bunch of random facts. It feels somewhat like you are joining them for a relaxed lunch! It really does mirror the way in which conversations disappear off at random tangents and are made far more...Read full review »

It’s worth everything! I love the Rabbit Hole Detectives. Your research has inspired my design process and made me a little bit wiser.
Golightly Adore via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/23
The highlight of my week is when a new episode comes out. I love the interaction between the three presenters. How they manage to make seemingly mundane topics such as urinals and libraries and service stations so scintillating never fails to amaze.

No matter the media I’m consuming—television, movies, books—, I’ve always found myself indulging in further explorations on the most peculiar and singular of subjects. This podcast takes this hobby of mine, mixes in delightful discussion among fascinating individuals, and builds up a repertoire...Read full review »

Excellent podcast, very entertaining, long may it continue.

The voices draw you in to listen closely as you don’t want to miss a word. Is now the highlight for Wednesdays as I press play & am transported into a tiny dark cramped studio to be transported back in time for the best mini history lessons. This week was a physical & emotional...Read full review »

Post-script to Charles' segment on falcons: Trained falcons are still hired by berry farmers to fly over their fields in the final weeks before the berries are picked. They scare away other birds that would eat the produce. I once met a man in Washington state who sent falcon crews all over...Read full review »

This podcast is not only informative about the most random of subject, but entertaining and fun. I can binge on episode after episode and feel as if I don’t want it to end. It’s not unlike getting caught up in my own research and falling down some random rabbit hole of information that fascinates...Read full review »

I love this. Friendly, informative, and amusing chat - like hanging out with best buddies around the fire. But - why does Cat call herself Doctor, but not use the gentlemen’s titles?

Every day is a school day, fun facts from vaccines to ties and everything else in between. Really enjoyable listen.

Fridesywidesy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/12/23
Since podcasting became easy to do, much dross has been foisted upon the listening public. This is not in that category at all. It’s a beautifully-conceived, easy-to-listen-to, wonderfully joyous experience. Three lovely, knowledgeable people - all of whom could have done this alone - walk us...Read full review »

The special mix of the three experts on this podcast and the little bundles of intriguing knowledge they present makes it very good fun.

I LOVE this podcast! It is joyful, interesting and full of twists and turns. 3 talented friends share fun facts on subjects they have been tasked to research. All are delivered with cheerful banter and guaranteed to get you chuckling and engaged.
Skye Spirit via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/05/23
I love these! It’s just like listening to three very likeable and intelligent friends giving out random information. The fact that two of them are from my home county of Northamptonshire which I hope to return to in a month or two is the real bonus. I lived in Kettering and then near Althorpe for...Read full review »

If you’re a bit of history geek with ADHD, like myself, this is a such a fun, informative listen! Bite size bits of history presented in an entertaining way makes this podcast a must listen!

Congratulation Richard! Two in a row! I travelled to Europe in 2019 and found myself in Winchcombe in the Cotswolds and the local church bells rang every quarter hour and I loved it. I hope the ringing never goes away. ( pffft Madonna ! ) Seriously though, you three have such great chemistry....Read full review »

Saviour of my dog-walking time when London is full of the sounds of drilling, sirens, aeroplanes and shouty scaffolders. I turn my noise-cancelling headphones up, learn, smile and savour an hour or so enjoying the Rabbit Holers dulcet tones!
secret identety via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/02/23
I came across the podcast by chance and love it!! (I’m glad Richard won this week)! I can’t wait for Wednesday’s to listen to it! Don’t stop 👍🏻
Mrs Boswell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/02/23
I thought I’d give this a try but expected it to be a bit dull. How wrong I was. It has become my new favourite podcast (and I listen to a lot). The chemistry between the 3 presenters is great and they really bring their subject each week to life.
Tarom78 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/30/23
Still enjoying this podcast more than many that I listen too. Please hurry back for series 2, I won’t cope without listening to your podcast!
miffysmate via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/26/23
I enjoy Rabbit Hole Detectives very much; it has become one of my favorite podcasts. But I have difficulty listening to Dr. Cat Jarman because she speaks so rapidly and doesn’t always enunciate very clearly. When she does her segment of the show, I have to slow it down to 3/4 speed in order to...Read full review »

I found myself quite upset at the end of the first series thinking it would not continue. I look forward to this podcast every week, intelligent banter, real erudition, and fun content. I did buy Cat’s book, which is also a bit of a rabbit hole detective search. Education very well disguised as...Read full review »

Really engaging series that just got better each episode. Highly recommend it.
JunoGraves via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/16/23
Have so enjoyed this series, I will miss it. Happy to hear that there will be a second series. It’s like eavesdropping on a conversation between three friends, a conversation that keeps going off at tangents as all the best conversations do!
Heather * via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/16/23
What a fun podcast! I’m learning a lot of interesting facts and very much enjoying the rapport between the hosts. My only suggestion would to be to add the topics into the title or at least in the description of each episode, as it would make it much easier to go back and find specific topics.
