Homestar Runner is a Flash-animated Internet cartoon series. It mixes surreal humor with references to retro pop culture, video games, classic television, and popular music.

The cartoons were originally centered on the title character, Homestar Runner. However, a series entitled Strong Bad Email or sbemail, in which another main character, Strong Bad, answers emails from viewers, became the most popular and prominent feature of the site. While Homestar and Strong Bad are the main characters, the site has grown to encompass dozens of other characters over the years.

The site is one of the most-visited sites with collections of Flash cartoons on the Internet and is notable for its refusal to sell advertising space (the creators pay for everything through merchandise sales, which includes a line of T-shirts). The owners of the website have turned down offers to make a television series.

The site's popularity spread via word of mouth. Beginning in 2010, updates stopped on the site, save for an "April Fools Day" cartoon released in 2014. However, in July, 2014, co-creator Matt Chapman announced that the site will soon begin receiving semi-regular updates, thanks to positive reception to the "April Fools" day cartoon.

I LOVE HOMESTAR RUNNER!!! So much fun, and it totally blazed the trail for online shorts, cartoons, webseries. It is one of the first and it is done so well, I highly recommend visiting this site. I gave service/support four stars cause they went off the grid for a few years, and that bummed me out. BUT it is heart warming and easy to get sucked into.

So far he has covered the English (very good), American (excellent) and French (very good) revolutions. All in lots of detail, from the 'seeds of change' that led up to th...

The History of Byzantium

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.
