"Listening to this podcast has been like stepping into another world. It has made accessible a great depth of history that I otherwise would never have had the time to experience. We in the West are very guilty of ignoring the (very long) histories of other civilizations, but this podcast takes China's story and makes it digestible to a casual student of history. I cannot recommend it more. Also it unintentionally convinced me that Steve Bannon is a eunuch, so there's that."

"A wonderful history of China from the beginning. The story is told with care and with a touch of humor, making the events accessible and fascinating even to a Westerner with little-to-no prior knowledge of Chinese history. Highly recommend this one."

"Great narrative history of china, but not too heavy. He makes it fun to learn about this sometimes dense topic."

"One of the podcasts I go to the office on a Sunday night to download (no internet at home in Bangui). It's that good of a pcast! "

"Chris does a great job of going into enough depth to really get into the material but keeps things moving at a good pace so there's never a dull moment. One of my favorite podcasts!"

"Nothing like having five millennia of Chinese history to play with and starting from the beginning. Thorough, thorough, thorough. I'm only a dozen episodes in or so, but I know more about early Chinese history now than I've ever known before, and I'm really looking forward to the future... "

"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."
