Matt Smith is a top-notch podcaster. Like his Emperors of Rome ‘cast, this one compiles the expertise of academics to introduce important historical figures. I especially enjoyed the episodes about Australian figures as they’re not part of the curriculum here in the States. No one will ever confuse the work here with one of those towering David McCullough biographies, but the short and sweet format provides a great base layer of understanding of who these people were and why their legacy perseveres.
