Greek history

Only a few episodes in but just love this. Can’t wait to work my way through.

Outstanding

I discovered this podcast as I was beginning my career teaching classics and ancient history. Ryan’s straightforward and detailed presentation of myriad aspects of Greek civilization, from the everyday life of the marginalized to the deeds of the so-called “great men,” has made this podcast a go-to resource for myself and my students to not only review learning material, but also enrich it. It only improves with time, and as a specialist in late antiquity, I hope he takes the narrative that far!

Hopping but not lite!

Great podcast, if you want as many twists and turns and blind pursuit of exploitation as today, check out Greek history!
