The Ancient World is the history podcast I enjoy the most. That is saying a lot, as I have listened to over forty series. TAW is the only one I have listened to three times (so far) in its entirety! On average, each episode has a much higher density of information than most history podcasts. A big plus is that Scott doesn't use over-long music tracks, or nonsense fill to make up for lack of material. Oh no. Scott never suffers from a lack of material! I love this guy!
It is unique in many ways - ways that make a huge difference to me. Scott covers really interesting history that is off the beaten path (mostly), which makes listening a real pleasure. Well researched episodes, laced with a bit of humor and commentary, affixed to a foundation of true love, awe, and respect for history and the people that live there. Fascinating stories of heroes, villains and events that have made our world what it is.
The episodes are well crafted, clever, and maintain a comfortable pace that will keep you going without leaving you in the dust, wondering what happened. He has a pleasant, clear voice that complements the material perfectly!
Scotts work has gifted me with a much better understanding of how civilization has progressed (and regressed) since the stone age. In addition, I have also been exposed to more bizarre names than I ever thought existed!
Try it..you'll like it - alot!

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

BuzzFeed

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

The Huffington Post

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...

Cracked

by tvanstee

Once one of my favorite sites to navigate, learn useless trivia, and waste hours on - Cracked has gradually descended into clickbait, heavy politicized liberal slam pieces, and generally has grown more and more akin to Buzzfeed in recent years.

The interesting thing is that althoug...
