The best podcast?

Mike Duncan makes fantastic podcasts using deep research, a masterful arrangement and presentation of information, and a humane though never melodramatic voice. This series of podcasts gets better and better with each revolution to which it turns its attention. The French Revoultion, Haitian Revolution and Mexican Revoltuions are particular highlights. The current investigantion of Revolutionary thought in the 19th Century is fascinating: you may find yourself agreeing with Marx and Engel's analysis, but prefer Bakunin's prioritisation of avoiding replacing one evil group of rulers with another. As a result, my bookshelves could now get me in trouble with the police.
