There are two areas of excellence in this podcast that make it very useful and enjoyable:

1) Explanation of the Subject
Islam contains a great amount of jargon, and yet the podcast is accessible to those who don't know the jargon, because it is introduced slowly and well defined. It is presented very well in a narrative style, but full of historical context to understand what is happening. It is wonderfully interesting and quite binge-able. There is a lot to be said for any history podcast that goes to this level of depth, but still offers this depth in bite-size segments.

2) Structure
Somehow, this is the ONLY podcast that I listen to that has the following structure:
A) very brief intro
B) next segment of the story
C) optional end notes that includes additional explanations, audience questions, and podcast administration.

EVERY podcast should be of this format. It boggles the mind that so many podcasts put long ads in all the strangest places. Or those that take forever to get started. It is clear that Elias is respecting our time.

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.

It's so amazing that we have the opportunity to listen to so many years of history is such a fine detail. It's a marvel of the modern world. Thanks for doing this, Robin!
