I’m listening to another podcast while I wait for my wife to get up…
As I’ve listened to nearly all the episodes of Robin Pierson’s History of Byzantium podcast (after listening to all the episodes of Mike Duncan’s History of Rome podcast, naturally) (and all the while listening to all the episodes of Scott C.’s The Ancient World podcast) I’m starting to look for the next podcast with exciting history material to listen to. Currently I’m enjoying the first few episodes of Sharyn Eastaugh’s History of the Crusades. We’re living in a great time for history lectures when we’re walking around town and doing our chores. Yay!
20’000 peasants including women and children walking from Germany to Turkey? Who needs a zombie apocalypse if you can have a starving families apocalypse.
Today, though, I’m listening to Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History. I listened to many of Dan’s episodes, but I didn’t go through his entire archive.
I guess I’m fascinated by podcasts that, taken together, form an ongoing narrative from the ancient past to the present.
Mike Duncan’s Revolutions podcast does just that. The English, American, French and Spanish American revolutions all belong to a continuity. It’s great.
As for another history podcast that doesn’t fit this linear model, I recommend Laszlo Montgomery’s Chinese History Podcast.
