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.

So, there isn't much to be said other than subscribing to Netflix is almost a necessity if you enjoy television. Their original programming is amazing and they have a great backlog of older television shows and some movies. The only thing I am disappointed about is that their movie selection is s...

I have been a GQ magazine reader for years and their website has just as high quality as the print publication. Now, specifically, they are doing a great job covering the 2017 political climate in a fair and unbiased way.

Good follow up to the History of Rome. Clear Narrative, I like that he generally sticks to mid-length episodes, but alters the length when needed.
