My Favorite Podcast

Excellent programs on a bounty of historical topics. Absolutely fascinating.

Only Sane Floridian ,

Listenability varies wildly.

Some historians are not meant to be public speakers. So many “ums”. Very interesting subjects are rendered painful to listen to. I turned off the Eunuchs episode as the accent of the first historian and her tendency to pronounce “r’s” with a “w” sound makes the presentation distracting. Also, the host is an obnoxious old man with bad manners and no concept of how to treat his guests. I recommend the History of England Podcast if you are into a few of these subjects, especially the Tudor court.
