This history podcast is the work of Mike Duncan, who wrote and narrated the epic 'History of Rome' podcast.

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 the revolutions themselves all the way through to their conclusion (i.e. when the dust settled).

The entertainment value is sometimes a bit variable, as I've alluded to above, but it's never boring - just ranging from 'good' to 'excellent'. Considering that tax policy is often a key ingredient for most revolutions, this is no mean feat!

Mike is highly regarded by all history podcasters having set the standard with the History of Rome. The Revolutions podcast is a worthy successor, bringing to life poorly covered periods of history and looking at some of the more popular topics from a different angle.

Highly recommended.

The website is a basic blog style list of posts linking to individual podcast episodes, with the option to leave comments. It is augmented by the inclusion of a bibliography (which is unfortunately not up-to-date with the podcast as of January 2015), as well as with links to various other works by the author. The blog entries often have little in the way of actual content to support the audio podcast, but it all works well enough.

The podcast itself presents a pleasant narrative summary of various political revolutions in (early) modern history, though the traditional choice of topics means the author is often firmly on the beaten path.

I'm a cord cutter and love hulu. They do a great job of providing up to date programming for most shows and the service is quite reliable. Their original programming isn't quite as good as their competitors, but pretty darn close. My main gripes are, 1) No CBS of CW shows, so I have to use differ...

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.
