History of Rome, beyond being of fantastic quality and enjoyment, also has had a powerful effect on the world of podcasting. I listen to many, and a large number of creators credit Mike Duncan for inspiring them to venture into the field.

It is not hard to see why.

He adds personality, wit, and understanding to a fantastically deep subject.

If you only look up one history podcast, it should be this one.

One of the great history podcasts. Mike's greatest skill is his ability to walk the line between novice and expert. I always felt informed and entertained without being patronised or overwhelmed. Throw in his sense of humour and command of tone and you have a podcast that will stand the test of time.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.

It's so amazing that we have the opportunity to listen to so many years of history is such a fine detail. It's a marvel of the modern world. Thanks for doing this, Robin!
