Excellent - impressive scholarship, important story

So I confess I was charmed when Benjamin and Adam introduced themselves in the first episode as brothers doing their doctorates in theoretical chemistry. It drew me in (having a similar background myself) but I stayed because the topic is important and little known and the podcast turned out to be really well done. There was a ton of detail across a broad range of topics, and useful insights especially about important historical figures. The scholarship behind this must have been staggering to complete. Recommend checking it out, and, eager to see what the brothers do next (separately or together).

Excellent Podcast on Risorgimento

After learning briefly the key points of the Italian unification on Mike Duncan’s Revolutions podcast, I’m so excited to get further into this wonderfully made podcast on Risorgimento!

Top 5 history podcast

Probably the best history podcast you’ve never heard of (assuming you’ve heard of any at all).

In depth, but never boring.
