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!

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...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
