    (PDF) Annotated List of Other History Podcast Shows I Have Subscribed

    This PDF documents provided an annotated list of history podcasts to which I am subscribed.  I hope you will find some new ones that will become your favorites as well.
    I have been inspired by many other great history podcasts.  I have a particular interest in World War One and World War Two.  Also, several dealing with interviews of people who survived The Holocust.  Several of the independent history podcasters have given me permission to rebroadcast a few of their episodes.  I am very grateful for their contribution to the students in my history class.
