A word of warning; if you start listening to this podcast, be prepared to turn your life over to devouring each and everyone of his seasons. I started listening to this for the English Revolution/Civil War and haven’t stopped since. Mike Duncan’s style is relaxed yet exceptionally informative and engaging. Couldn’t recommend this more highly. His coverage of the French Revolution is so enthralling that I have had to start learning French as a result!
One of the all time great podcasts, a single canonical history of western societal upheaval from the English Revolution to the Russian Revolution. The stand out for me comes from the Haitian Revolution, a significant and tragic story that I knew next to nothing about. Excellent stuff.
