I think the site is clean and basic which is fine. Advertisements are very minimal. As far as the writing itself, Gawker lives up to it's east coast roots. Very blunt, to the point and direct. I appreciate that, because I find that a lot of news/gossip sites tend to write with a dialogue thats very flowery. Just give me the dirt, it doesn't have to an authors spiral into their own conflicting thoughts. Gawker authors get it, for people who just need the facts quick. Runs well on iphone as well.

Such a fantastic podcast!

It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
