I have occasionally linked the podcasts I listen to both as an effort to remember and as an attempt at recommendation. It has been more than a year since my last update.

I listen to podcasts while walking. I find walking to be ideally suited to listening because it is neither too strenuous to require much attention nor is it too light to let the mind wander.

Looking at iCatcher! on my phone, I see the following podcasts:

Any podcasts you are listening to you’d like to recommend?

Once you have listened to this overview, perhaps you’ll be ready for The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire— there’s an old recording on archive.org, or various readers on librivox.org.

I enjoy Raumzeit by Tim Pritlove and TankRiot a lot.

I just saw that the author of the History of Philospohy podcast wrote a blog post linking to other history podcasts.

I’ve listened to two podcast series of Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History show, the five episodes on the Mongols, “Wrath of the Khans”, and the five episodes on the fall of the Roman Republic, “Death Throws of the Republic”. I enjoyed these so much, I donated $10.

I just donated another $10 to the World War II Podcast.
