Brilliant and fun

An enchanting, rambling, insightful, extensive tour of pre-modern Europe told in a humble, humorous way backed by extensive research. Highly recommend.

History as its supposed to be learned

Actually, I believe that this is the most rigorously researched istory podact available, and one of the very few from whom it is possible to not merely listen to history, but learn history and the methodalogy of historilans. Brilliant.

Smart and Funny

W2W does a great job of uncovering lesser known aspects of European history, and setting the record straight on things we thought we knew about. Not only is this podcast extremely informative, Ben’s wry (dry?) sense of humor makes it fun to listen to. More than once, I’ve found myself smiling or nodding during an episode. I am a big fan.
