Woot! was one of the first deal-a-day websites. They started out as an electronics liquidator (although I'm not sure they'd ever have described themselves that way) with an innovative business model, cheeky irreverence and cheerful self-deprecation. Along the way they got bought by Amazon, added multiple sub-domains and diluted their business model a bit (in addition to the daily deals, there are now multiple longer-duration sales in each category; they started out selling a single product at any given time, and now it's well over a hundred). The irreverence and self-deprecation have remained, as have the (generally) great prices, $5 flat-rate shipping, and traditions such as the Woot-Off and Bag of Crap.

I've dinged them a bit for service/support. Because of their business model - constantly changing product lines and minimal inventory - they really don't _do_ returns. If your product is defective they'll take care of you, but if you receive your purchase and realize it isn't what you want, they'll essentially tell you to sell it on eBay. (To be fair, their prices are generally low enough that most people are able to do just that and make a profit. But it's not very convenient, and it ain't for everybody.)

I wouldn't be human if I didn't sadly shake my head over the good old days, but I still check the site several times a week (several times per minute during Woot-Offs) and occasionally still find spectacular deals. Woot!

So far he has covered the English (very good), American (excellent) and French (very good) revolutions. All in lots of detail, from the 'seeds of change' that led up to th...

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

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.
