Great history podcast

This has been one of my favorites since I came upon it awhile back and have nearly worked my way through. Aside from the narrative history which is extremely precise, there have been excellent excursions into ancient Greek culture and cultic practices as well as interviews with other classicists covering a variety of topics.

Fascinating material but delivered with flaws

Ryan does a good job compiling the over 2000 year history of Ancient Greece into his podcast, but too often than not he seems to be reading off a Wikipedia article in a monotone voice. In addition, it is difficult to get over his very poor pronunciation of Greek words, and other little nuisances, such as stating the Molassians and other Epirotes were not Hellenic tribes, and his guests including far left professors who preach non-sensical theories.
