Quite Possibly One of the Greatest Podcasts I’ve Discovered

From John D. Rockefeller to Cleopatra to Winston Churchill, the orator of this podcast is amazing in his ability to make history real. Everything is extremely well researched, pulling from the highest rated biographies about these historical figures, and making people I hadn’t given a second thought to some of the most interesting people I’ve ever imagined.

I cannot stress enough how much this podcast has renewed my interest in history, and influenced me to purchase biographies of my own to read in my spare time. Thank you very much for producing these.

Would love to hear more episodes about women

I was so excited to listen to this podcast, especially after reading the reviews. I loved the first one and have since listened to almost all of them. I was disappointed to find that out of all of the episodes there were few focusing on woman. Surely there are many exemplary and interesting women representing our collective history! Thank you again for the wonderful podcast series.
