This is one impressive show. Like all the great narrative, "mass market" podcasts, it's accessible, but the the breadth and depth of detail is simple astounding. I listen to a lot of similar shows on all different histories, and this is my favorite. While the subject matter may seem less interesting to many, but I would bet that most people that like a good narrative history of England or Rome or whaatever would enjoy this just as much, if not more. The show is just so approachable and gives you so much information that's so easy to digest, it really is a treat. Instead of rich white men fighting to see who is the biggest jerk, you get to hear about (mostly) rich white men arguing about who's the smartest.
