This is the podcast that I really look forward to more than any other. The information given is fascinating, and the production is second to none.

It is a continuation of The History of Rome by Mike Duncan but I believe it has surpassed that as great as it was.

Well worth a listen. You won't be disappointed.

I have just finished to the back issues of the podcast and really look forward to further programmes. It gives a detailed yet understandable history of the Byzantium state which as the modern use of the word "Byzantium" is often complex but the podcast does well to explain what has occurred.

One of the best history podcasts around at the moment.
Ostensibly a continuation of the epic History of Rome podcast by Mike Duncan the History of Byzantium is both its equal and a very worthy and distinctive podcast in its own right.
A period little known to many this is the very best introduction to the Roman East there is and long may it continue until the bitter end of that fascinating civilisation, that 1000 year old pearl balanced between east and west.
Unmissable.

I love this podcast. The audio is great and the topic is something that isn't covered by much of western histories. The Robin presents everything Ina narrative style that makes me care about the people. If it wasn't for this podcast I wouldn't really even care about Rome. I cant recommend this enough.

I came to this podcast, like so many others, in the awful dry period between the end of Mike Duncan's "The History of Rome" and the announcement of his "Revolutions". I was starved for a history-podcast fix, and even more I felt I'd been left hanging at a critical point in the story. Well, thank the podcasting gods for Robin Pierson!

His historical research is thorough, his writing is excellent, and his podcasting delivery is a pleasure to listen to. He alternates stretches of narrative episodes with episodes detailing the cultural/religious/societal landscape at various points; as a result, I feel I have a better feeling for what Byzantine life was like that I ever did when I was studying the subject.

Highly recommended.

Great stuff. Love listening to it. I won't be to lengthy, because I'm at work and if I'm gonna piss my day away with non-work related stuff, I'd rather do it listening to The History of Byzantium than writing this review.

In any case, interesting. I never thought I'd find the conflicts within the Orthodox christian church to be as interesting as I now do.

Monophysitism stronk!

An amazing podcast: well-researched, informative, and well-paced. A "must" both for history fans and those wishing to understand the great civilizations of late antiquity.

The History of English Podcast

by Simon Wheeler

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...
