"Possibly the best history podcast out there. The story of China from mythic origins through dynasty after dynasty. With history's biggest wars and technological developments, ethnic and social upheavals and the most brilliant and devious characters. There are truly great stories here. I didn't know much about China before I started listening but I have listened to every one of them at least once and I am completely hooked and will be to the end. Highly recommended."
