Lore
Lore is a bi-weekly podcast (as well as a TV show and book series) about dark historical tales. Each episode explores the mysterious creatures, tragic events, and unusual places that fill the pages of history. Because sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction.
Dan Carlin's Hardcore History
In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions of listeners.
The Monday American: American History Podcast
American history, one story at a time. Every episode tells the story of the people and the events that matter in America's past. The more you look at history you'll see that hindsight isn’t always 20/20. This is the American History podcast that never takes the story out of history.
Revisionist History
Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
The Story Behind
The Story Behind tells the extraordinary history of the ordinary. Everyday objects are more closely examined, from their ancient beginnings through the present—all within 5-10 minutes.
Footnoting History
From Neanderthals to Napoleon's sister, Footnoting History's team of academics share their favorite stories from across history. New episodes every other Saturday.
Witness
An inspiring documentary series that brings world issues into focus through compelling human stories.
Sidedoor
More than 154 million treasures fill the Smithsonian’s vaults, but where public view ends, Sidedoor begins.
