Fantastic pod

Fantastic storytelling and material. If you haven’t read Mike Duncan’s recent book on Rome, read or listen to it on audible.

Fantastic

Not only is this podcast incredibly educational and fascinating, it is brimming with the charm and humor that anyone who listened to The History of Rome would have come to expect from host Mike Duncan. Every chapter/season, I am once again blown away by how much 18th and 19th century history I was completely unaware of. It really is a joy to hear it for the first time so succinctly and intelligently spoken by Mike. Even for people who are not necessarily interested in revolutions, so much other history and context is described here that it would be a disservice to yourself NOT to listen. 5/5.

Excellent. Where are revolutions 1.0 to 9.0 to be found?

I’ve just found revolution 10. Excellent. I can’t find revolutions 1.0 to 9.0. How can I find them?

Accessible History

Mike Duncan does an amazing job of telling a strong narrative while keeping the information at or near graduate-level. Must listen.

A great listen

Mike Duncan is a gifted storyteller and a great researcher. Like its precursor, The History of Rome, Revolutions rewards a deep dive into the series. Start with episode one. You won’t regret it.

Amazing...but please hurry with Russia!

I became an avid fan of Mark Duncan through The History of Rome, and he became an even better podcaster with revolutions. They just kept getting better and tying a bigger and bigger picture of the world for me, and I enjoy listening to them and discussing with my wife.However...the Russian revolution is dragging. He completed several other series in less than 20 episodes, and we seem to be just continuing more and more context with Russia. I like it, but we are 24 episodes in and have not yet made it to 1900!

Immersive Storytelling

Long time listener since Mike Duncan’s History of Rome podcast. His style of storytelling, along with the plethora of historical information gleaned from each week’s podcast, is what keeps me coming back week to week. I can not recommend anyone more highly for historical podcasts.

Mike Duncan is iconic.

You can come in with little to no knowledge of history but still enjoy the narrative structure of this podcast and learn some cool stuff too.

Radicalizing me more by the minute

Revolutions is hands-down one of the best podcasts out there. Thoroughly researched, well composed, and eloquently delivered, it’s a pleasure to listen to both for education and entertainment.

Great Podcast

This pod (Season 10) does an excellent job of summarizing Marx and Marxism, the historical context of 19th Century Europe, and the different strains of leftism taking shape in the 1840’s and 1850’s. I started on Season 10 but it’s been wildly entertaining and informative.

Excellent

I’ve never been particularly interested in history, but after discovering Mike through Chapo Trap House I’ve been fully enthralled and have made my way through several seasons—hundreds of years of history I didn’t know I needed to learn about. I can’t fathom the amount of work that must have had to go into this, all to make a free podcast. Thank you Mike Duncan for your enormous gift!

Brilliant

Besides Mark, during the French episodes, kinda predicted what’d happen in our world from 2016 on, his storytelling is also brilliant and addictive.

Best Podcaster

Truly one of the greatest podcasters of all time. Not only has Mike Duncan produced consistent content, week after week, for over 10 years, he has also opened up a wealth of history to an infinitely wider audience than has ever been possible with his meticulous research and commitment to an unbiased account of what happened and why it’s important.

Best podcast period

I cannot help but rave about this podcast to any and everyone. I especially appreciated the amazing work done to make 100+ episodes of the French Revolution fly by like a summer breeze. Our world today is still so shaped by these revolutions and no one I know tells these stories better than Mr. Duncan. If I may say one thing, for whatever reason, I didn’t track with Mike’s early podcast, The History of Rome. If you are in the same camp, please don’t let that cause you to miss this amazing podcast. I will mourn the day he stops doing it.

One of my favorites!

I’ve listened to season three about five times now. I love that the seasons are structured to show the revolutionary arc that took place during the 18-19th centuries and how they all contributed to the coming of “industrialization” and the “modern age.” I also love that he mentions women’s roles in the different revolutions (see: women’s march on Versailles and Vera Zasulich). Also he’s good about eliminating the hero-worship tint that a lot of historical perspectives put on central figures. One of my top podcasts—might start my own revolution just to make sure there’s content for another season (;

Amazing show

I have listening to Mike since History of Rome. I love this take on Revolutions. He presents things in an entertaining and factual way that is educational and also short enough to be easily digestible (both in length of podcasts as well as length of seasons).Give it a shot and you will not be sorry.
