History rocks

The one low rate is now 7 almost 8 years old and is only worth reading because it's so long that you can use it as a template for a thesis.

Dive in with the ladies and hear the things you just didn't get in class. Follow historical individuals from cradle to grave and all the in between that you've lost out on, until now.

A Quick History Fix

It's a fun, quick podcast about various topics through history. Some of them major, but most of them just little tidbits. If you're looking for huge in-depth episodes about vast topics, this is not the podcast for you. However, if you like some casual listening and want to learn something neat but not overly complex it'll probably be perfect. There's a lot of negativity about the hosts voices. Personally I don't mind them, but they're not quite 'made for radio'.

The reason it gets a 3/5 instead of a 4/5 is the massive increase in ads over the past year. I've noticed it on other HowStuffWorks podcasts as well, most notably the main podcast called 'How Stuff Works'. When you have ads five minutes into the episode, it's disruptive and breaks the flow of the episode topic. When you then have ANOTHER ad five to ten minutes later, it becomes annoying. Have sponsors either before the show, or in the middle as an interlude segment. The way it is now feels very strained and out of place. The only reason I bring it up is because I've been listening for years, and I've only noticed this trend starting recently, and it may be enough to turn me (and probably a lot of other people) off the show completely. Which I find rather sad, because I do genuinely like the show. There's a lot of history podcasts out there, guys. Just an FYI.
