The History of England is the best history podcast on the planet - bar none.
Why? Let me count the ways....
First, Englands history is a great story. Second, and most important is - David Crowther. That's all it takes.
David Crowther loves English history. It makes a difference. He is also a natural storyteller. With the synergy present here, like a good book, you can't put him down.
His narrative is captivating - well researched, well organized, professionally crafted and properly paced. You would not think him an amateur! The only thing that gives it away are some of the early episodes, when he first started. It did not take him long to get his bearings....
On top of all that, he seems a likable sort...
We all know that nothing is perfect, and that is true here, as well. Every once in a while, the @#%# will do a cliffhanger, and leave you hanging for a week or two. I can't tell you how much that irritates me! The fact that I still listen is a testimonial to the quality of his show!
Give it a go. You won't regret it, unless you are pressed for time! You will be hooked!

The Ancient World

History , Podcasts
The Ancient World is the history podcast I enjoy the most. That is saying a lot, as I have listened to over forty series. TAW is the only one I have listened to three times (so far) in its entirety! On average, each episode has a much higher density of information than most history podcasts. A big plus is that Scott doesn't use over-long music tracks, or nonsense fill to make up for lack of material. Oh no. Scott never suffers from a lack of material! I love this guy!
It is unique in many ways - ways that make a huge difference to me. Scott covers really interesting history that is off the beaten path (mostly), which makes listening a real pleasure. Well researched episodes, laced with a bit of humor and commentary, affixed to a foundation of true love, awe, and respect for history and the people that live there. Fascinating stories of heroes, villains and events that have made our world what it is.
The episodes are well crafted, clever, and maintain a comfortable pace that will keep you going without leaving you in the dust, wondering what happened. He has a pleasant, clear voice that complements the material perfectly!
Scotts work has gifted me with a much better understanding of how civilization has progressed (and regressed) since the stone age. In addition, I have also been exposed to more bizarre names than I ever thought existed!
Try it..you'll like it - alot!

Ok. I can't really say enough about Yelp being an internet bully especially when it comes to smaller businesses. I understand that you have to keep a site moving by having advertisements and what not. But when it comes to small business owners wanting control over their own yelp page and web pr...

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.
