Well Researched

Most detailed English podcast about Chinese political history. The host takes time to delivery quality information that few know about.

My favorite segment is about the Song Dynasty. It definitely changed my original perception of that dynasty.

So far so good

Updated: I really enjoy the narrative and enthusiasm. As an avid history buff, I’m always on the lookout for a great podcast. Can definitely recommend!
To podcaster: I kindly request that you slow down when speaking. It is hard to absorb what is being said. Thank you.

Just what you're looking for

China enthusiasts have a hard time finding books and sources in English. Most books are general histories, and while the primary sources are available, there is no massive body of work to analyze them like what we have for Livy, Polybius, and Bede.

This podcast does a great summation of significant parts of Chinese history, with just the appropriate amount of editorializing. Most histories cover an era in a single chapter, but HOC goes into good detail for each. You may always want more, but this one exceeded my expectations.
