Great Show

This podcast is extremely educational and backed by verifiable sources for you to check out on your own if you want to learn even more than they already talked about. Extremely entertaining for history buffs like myself.

Love this show!!

Love it!

Ok so YES I am the Co-Host but I'm the NEW co-host... I loved this podcast since I first found it and when I heard Dan was looking for new writers and hosts I jumped at the opportunity. Dan has a brilliant mind and an excellent grasp of the facts. With his Swedish accent and a voice as smooth as butter, you'll be mesmerized by his spot on pronunciation of Ancient Mesopotamian names like Nabu-shuma-ishkun and Shamash-shum-ukin! : ) The podcast has been counting back events in World History from 1000 BC with some special episodes sprinkled in. So if you're a "fan of history" like me you should definitely check out the "Fan of History" podcast!
