Ahistorical waste of time

This podcast is nothing more than uncritical derivative drivel from real works by real historians. There is zero actual analysis of the reliability of sources that this person simply parrots and paraphrases. Furthermore, some repeated word pronunciations are so unnecessarily distorted as to provoke massive irritation in the listener, giving some appreciation for the stereotype of sensitive francophones. For the amount of books apparently read by the podcaster they should have taken the time to learn basic scholarly accepted latin pronunciations, something which would have taken minutes and which was done for other podcasts made by this person. (OdoAYSER, pulCHeria; should be Oduhkar/odovakuh & pulkeria)

I don’t know how I would live without mike Duncan

I have almost no people who have been as influential on how I think about history as Mike has, just an outstanding entertainer and historian and has made me dive into history in a way I never did before.
