CoinWeek Podcast #165: Mike Markowitz on Byzantine Coins
This week on the CoinWeek Podcast, Mike Markowitz sits down to discuss his favorite area of ancient coin collecting, Byzantine coins. The Byzantine Empire stood for more than a thousand years, falling on May 29, 1453 when Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire. Historians call it the Byzantine Empire, but they called themselves Romans. Their coinage is often imbued with religious symbolism and the echoes of history that they contain within have inspired generations of collectors. You’ll learn more, next on the CoinWeek Podcast.

CoinWeek Podcast #160: Silver: America's Historical & Political Metal
Silver is a confounding, confusing, and controversial metal, whose continued use in American federal circulating coinage from 1794 to 1970 was the a central focus of competing visions of our economic system, a galvanizing topic for 19th century American Populists, and a metal whose role in American life is as confounding as it is sometimes maddening. In this Podcast, economist William Silber joins us to talk about Silver and how the white metal shaped America and the Modern World.

I just found this podcast and have listened to a few episodes. I'm really enjoying it so far. My only complaint is that the host always sounds as if he is reading, even in interviews. It takes me out of the interview at times. I would rather hear more natural conversation. Otherwise I would have given it five stars. A solid hour of coin talk, each week, would be nice too.
Long winded questions
Charles Morgan the announcer gets very interesting people on the podcast and then he asks them run-on-sentence questions that take most of the time. The guest simply listens to Charles lecture them when they are the expert and he is not.
Great short podcast
Great Podcast, really enjoy the topics and learns great deal, please keep up the great work!
