  1. Looking back at 1,500 years of history, as seen through the eyes of the kings and queens of France... Every episode of T+M starts with a re-telling of a story pulled from the history books, then we try to figure out what really happened. Some of the stories we've explored: 1) Did Attila really attack Gaul because he wasn't allowed to marry a Roman Emperor's sister? 2) Was Merovech, the first king of the Merovingians, really descended from a sea-god's pet mermaid-bull hybrid? 3) Did Clovis the First really stop in the middle of a battle to make a deal with God to convert to Christianity?
  2. American Revolution Podcast explores the events of the American Revolution, from beginning to end. It publishes weekly. Be sure to check out the related blog for access to pictures, maps, and links to more useful information on each week's episode. https://blog.amrevpodcast.com
  3. In this “unashamedly homegrown” podcast we tell the story of our islands from the time before people arrived all the way up to the year 2000. Contrary to what some may say we have a supremely interesting and varied history, even before the arrival of Europeans! In fact, you will find that over the first 50+ episodes we talk almost exclusively about pre-European Tangata Whenua, the people of the land, also known as Māori. As you might expect there will be a healthy dose of Te Reo Māori, the Māori language, being used throughout the podcast. But don’t worry, if you need help there are helpful resources on historyaotearoa.com to assist you in learning the various words and phrases we use. Apart from the more usual narrative based history content you may be used to, we also do dramatic retellings of Māori stories such as Māui slowing the sun. With the help of some editing magic, we try to bring the stories to life through the podcast medium while still staying true to the Māori oral tradition. There will be all the big names you have heard before, James Cook, Hōne Heke, Kate Sheppard and many others but also lesser known people like Bob Semple and Barnet Burns.
  4. A podcast about the politics and the history of the eastern Europe - including, but not limited to the current state of Russia, politics of the EU, history of the USSR and the region in general
