Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.

Stitching together pieces of history in an easy to absorb format. Turns my commute into time well spent. I'm afriad of running out of episodes...

Engrossing and valuable

Reading a tome on history is an investment in time most choose to skip. This podcast is of great educational value and delivers the goods in a very convenient/usable form. Accessible to us all, engrossing and relevant. As fact based as possible. Mr. Wyman, your efforts are greatly appreciated and go a long way to bring valuable historical lessons to life!

Checks All of the Boxes

Let me just start by saying that I (obviously) love this podcast. It gets me through my morning commute and helps me wind down in the evening. As a journalism student who works in audio and has had a lifetime love for history, this podcast really checks all of the boxes for me. Well researched content? Check. Quality and engaging explanation/conversation of that research? Check. Easy to follow and easy to enjoy? Big ol’ check. Need I go on? The variation of approach within this cast is also really great with guests and co-hosts adding greatly to the content even if only asking questions of Patrick to elaborate on the topic. Everything is just clearly so thoughtful. I highly recommend this podcast to history lovers and critical thinkers who are looking for something quality, professional but still a whole lot of fun. Cheers!
