The best history podcast I’ve listened to, really.

A lot of history podcasts I’ve listened to seem to stumble either in terms of their storytelling or in terms of their portrayal of actual history. Many can do one but not the other. The Age of Napoleon manages both, and it absolutely shows. Really informative, thought-provoking, and interesting. But cohesive and actually watchable (listenable?) as well. Rarely can I binge a history podcast and feel like I’ve actually learned something. I recommend it to anyone, especially those interested in history, even if Napoleonic history in particular isn’t typically up your alley. Age of Napoleon is just a really good example of what a history podcast should be. Podcasters take note.

Good but...

These really need the episode numbers in the titles. iTunes decided to put them in some random order and I thought they sorted by date.
