Fantastic History Podcast, One of the Best

Akin to “Tides of History” in that it concerns itself primarily with topics and issues of history within a particular period rather than narratively structured (eg, history of Rome). Almost entirely interviews with a diverse and interesting set of classicist. YMMV, but I there hasn’t been a bad interview or guest yet. Highly, highly recommended.

wonderful interview history show

The guests Lantern Jack is able to get on the show is really impressive and he's a great interviewer. Being able to get the most up to date research on the Greek and ancient Mediterranean world from the people at the forefront of archealogy and classics is great. I've gone on to read many of the works by his guests because of how interesting the conversations in the show were.

I can't believe I love this Podcast!

I'm not an Ancient Greece junkie. I love history, but I studied the American west and art. I hated philosophy class in college, and reading Socrates always made me fall asleep. In the middle class. But this podacast is SO fascinating and I love listneing! It's great - the host has a fab listening voice and the people he interviews are experts about the topics, so I know I can relax and take what they're saying at fact. Host takes questions and suggestions from ancient Greek lay-folk, such as myself, and this draws you in. He does a good job of wrapping up the discussions into modern thought and making the topics relevant. I always get super into each episode, and I never would have given any attention to, say, ancient Grecian theater, for instance. I espeically like listening to this on road trips. I also like that it provides a way for me to learn about a topic I never would have otherwise. Who knew Ancient Greece was SO influential in our modern day lives? Listen to this Podcast. Turst me.
