300 episodes

For history lovers who listen to podcasts, History Unplugged is the most comprehensive show of its kind. It's the only show that dedicates episodes to both interviewing experts and answering questions from its audience. First, it features a call-in show where you can ask our resident historian (Scott Rank, PhD) absolutely anything (What was it like to be a Turkish sultan with four wives and twelve concubines? If you were sent back in time, how would you kill Hitler?). Second, it features long-form interviews with best-selling authors who have written about everything. Topics include gruff World War II generals who flew with airmen on bombing raids, a war horse who gained the rank of sergeant, and presidents who gave their best speeches while drunk.

Great show

Came across this earlier in the year and it’s a fantastic podcast. Tried a few other history podcasts but they weren’t a patch on this. The recent American civil war one has been captivating. Not a subject that interested me much before but through the podcasts it was really brought to life.

Loving The 10 Battles Series

I’ve dipped in and out of this podcast in the past and thought it was good but I have to say that The Civil War in 10 Battles series has been absolutely superb! Scott and James both do a great job of providing a really interesting account of important events, they drill into the minutia of what happened but it never gets dry. Hopefully these two continue to collaborate together in future!
