This months podcast blog is one of my favourite history podcasts. Most history podcasts tends to follow a logical sequence i.e. the history of England from Anglo-Saxon times to the 20th century. Dan Carlin does it differently. His approach is to take a single subject, research it in great depth, and then produce up to four or five podcasts covering the whole story. His story-lines have covered subjects from the fall of the Roman Republic and the Punic wars to the Second World War and the Cold War. His most recent series have been on the rise of the Mongol Empire in the Middle Ages. This is certainly not a podcast for somebody who just wants a summary of a subject as the five podcasts in this series total over eight hours of broadcasting. The in-depth focus of these pod casts allows the listener to get right into the heart of the matter and for this alone, they are extremely valuable and entertaining. In addition to the great material and its depth. These forecasts are both well presented and well produced.

I recommend these podcasts to anyone interested in history. They can be obtained via the iTunes store or from Dan Carling’s website (http://www.dancarlin.com/disp.php/hh)
