Details en diepte, zoals de uitzending die de pest uitlegt bijvoorbeeld. Verhelderend.

Long and informative

Having listened to 48 episodes, I must say I am getting quite into it. The podcast sure takes its time, and gives more background and overview episodes than its predecessor 'The history of Rome' did. Although at times it is too longwinded for me, the podcaster has a keen vision on history and is apt at keeping this last period of the 'Roman' history interesting.

A wonderful history well told

After having been introduced to history podcasts by Lars Brownworth's '12 Byzantine Rulers' I found myself even more curious about the history of these peoples. We keep coming back to the history of Rome or Ancient Greece for obvious reasons. However at some point you have heard it all before.

I love the fact that there is so much attention to detail. When it comes to the history of such a consequential and fascinating civilization you just get more fascinated as the story continues. There is something heroic about their endless strugle to keep the forces of desintegration at bay. Their inevitable tragic undoing and subequent unfair portayal by European history make this thoughtful and eloquent portrayal all the more powerful.

Fortunately the creator Robin Pierson seems to leave no source untouched and takes the story beyond the major historical figures and events. The narration is just wonderfull and I love the effort he put into the Greek pronounciation of names and places. I tend to listen to it while I wind down at the end of the day. So the soft intonation suits me really well.
