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.

Kill the Music

Probably a very fascinating podcast in terms of content, but I find it impossible to concentrate on the message when the message has to compete with cheesy, swelling, over-the-top video game background music.

The host is to be commended on his knowledge and enthusiasm, but his inability to resist engaging in seemingly endless strings of hypotheticals to set a scene is more than a little annoying, as is the tendency to lard the podcast with quotes. Just give a bibliography and I'll go read those other authors myself if I want to hear what they have to say.

The subject is fascinating on its own and the host's zeal can more than sell it to the listener. Hiring a "sound designer" who distracts the listener by having the music compete with the host was a counterproductive exercise in lily gilding.

The hypothetical setups and the heavily-used attributed direct quotations stylistically clash. It is as though he can't decide whether he is writing fan fiction or a footnoted research paper. Pick one.

Sad to say I'll be unsubscribing this podcast for the same reasons I unsubscribed his Roman history podcasts a few months ago, and just as quickly.
