Thanks for recording this Jane. I always enjoy seeing what other people are recommending. I am also a huge Dan Carlin fan. I have listened to every one of his Hardcore History shows, and stay current with Common Sense.
For anyone who loves US history, I can also recommend Ben Franklin's World, which is at https://www.benfranklinsworld.com/ . They bill themselves as a podcast about "Early American History, which in practice means Colonial through the Civil War.

Ask Me Another
I enjoyed this episode, thanks. if you like "Wait wait, don't tell me," you probably would like "Ask me another," if you don't already listen to it. Thanks also for mentioning the James Joyce podcast. I'm a huge James Joyce fan and at one point studied his works quite closely. If nothing else, that podcast is guaranteed to have a steady source of new material for a really long time. :-)

Frank Delaney et al
I thoroughly echo Kevin's comments about Dan Carlin. Also knew little about the history of First World War, even though my late father was fascinated by it, and our house was full of books about it. Dan Carlin drew a picture of events that horrified and fascinated me.
In the past I have listened to Frank Delaney a lot on BBC Radio, where he presented programmes called "Bookshelf" and "Word of Mouth", both absolutely excellent in my opinion. I shall follow your recommendation and try his podcast as well.
Thanks for such an interesting show.
