Everywhere around us are echoes of the past. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.

Dr. Wyman knows his stuff

I think this is the best history podcast in all the land. Every episode is thoroughly researched, extremely informative, and he’s really highlighted how the Western world evolved to the modern era in a way that isn’t dry lecturing.

Additionally, his book recommendations are spot on. I’ve read a few and they were all really great.

Tides of History- Best History Podcast out there

Patrick brings history alive better than anyone I have encountered. His mastery of the material and enthusiasm for presenting it is obvious in every episode. I am a longtime fan of In Our Time, but find many of the conversations stuffy and esoteric. Patrick depicts the events and times with vivid descriptions and explains how they fit into the overall historical context. The most amazing thing to me is his age. That someone so young should have a talent to inform and entertain on the level of an Irving Finkel amazes. I would highly recommend listening to Mr. Wyman.
