One of the great history podcasts. Mike's greatest skill is his ability to walk the line between novice and expert. I always felt informed and entertained without being patronised or overwhelmed. Throw in his sense of humour and command of tone and you have a podcast that will stand the test of time.

History of Rome, beyond being of fantastic quality and enjoyment, also has had a powerful effect on the world of podcasting. I listen to many, and a large number of creators credit Mike Duncan for inspiring them to venture into the field.

It is not hard to see why.

He adds personality, wit, and understanding to a fantastically deep subject.

If you only look up one history podcast, it should be this one.

Dear Travelzoo,

This is a love letter. Are you beautiful? Mmmm... you're pretty but let's not be hyperbolic and say you're gorgeous. I mean, you're definitely not fugly or anything! (4 stars!) You could try a little harder but we all know that it's what's on the inside that counts....

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
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.
