only listened to the Haitian Revolution series (season?) but i love how engaging it is, and how it avoids the Great Man theory of history while still painting an intimate picture of various pivotal individuals involved
The gold standard in history podcasting.
I was a big fan of host Mike Duncan's previous show, The History of Rome, so when this one started up I was in. Duncan makes the history he covers engaging and entertaining, and by providing the breadth of context that he does, he gives a lot of insight into how and why different historical revolutions unfolded the way they did. This, in turn, gives us a lot of context for understanding why things are the way they are in the world we live in now, because if one thing is clear from this show, it's that all of history is connected.
