Rank #1: 001 - Let There Be History

Podcast cover
Read more

The very first chapter of The Podcast History of Our World! Here I explain the purpose and intent of the program and begin our history tour...with some non-history! What's a good starting point for history? 10,000 BC? 10,000,000 BC? How about at the beginning of all things and some creation myths to pave our way!

Rank #2: 070 - Legends of the Roman Kings

Podcast cover
Read more

Why legends? Because the first four kings of Rome have no historical corroborating evidence! I mean, they probably existed...seems like an awful lot of detail for supposedly fictional people...but we'll most likely never know for sure. That won't stop us from learning about them anyway!

Rank #3: 069 - Rome

Podcast cover
Read more

Ave Podcastorians! This is it - our first foray into the hallowed halls of Roman history, although in typical TPHOOW tradition...there's very little actual 'history' in this episode. Oh c'mon you know you missed it!

And HEY who's that introducing the episode? Why it's none other than guest introducer and fearsome corsair Cap'n Craig Buddy of the History of Pirates Podcast! Be sure to give his excellent show a listen and indulge your inner buccaneer!

The second episode, more anthropology than history but c'mon, you want the full story right? So let's talk about climate change, evolution, and meat eating! There's something to upset everyone!

Rank #5: 047 - Alexander the Great

Podcast cover

Was he so great? Well his mom certainly thought so, and so did he! And really, when it comes right down to it, he did more by 20 than pretty much everybody since then. 

Lousy overachievers...

Featuring a guest introduction by the podcaster who has an ENTIRE series on Alex...Jamie Redfern! Be sure to listen to his extremely well made The History of: Alexander

We begin our tour of ancient China! Gonna throw it out there right now, I do my best with the pronunciations. I think they're decent but they're not perfect. If you want to hear fluent speakers there are two excellent Chinese History podcasts available for your listening pleasure. Check them out!

Rank #8: 003 - Legacy of Prometheus

Podcast cover

In case you can't tell from the title, our exciting third episode has something to do with Prometheus' gift to humanity! But that's not all, how about some scientific reasons about skin pigmentation, evidence of another human species on this Earth, and why I choose to use BC/AD. Check it out!

Rank #9: 030 - Cyrus the Great

Podcast cover
Read more

So many people throughout history get to have "The Great" as a moniker, but do they deserve it? Heck no! But Cyrus, here is the exception! From the curious mythology of his birth, to the massive empire he carved out in thirty years, to essentially penning the first human rights charter, who in the ancient world can compare to the luminosity of Cyrus the Achaemenid? Pfft! Go ahead! I challenge you to do so!

Rank #11: 036 - Sparta

Podcast cover

THIS IS...an episode about Sparta! (and there are no 300 references in here too. Well, one, but it's about facial hair!) People just looove Sparta. Tough guys and gals who don't let anyone stand in their way! Grr! Kick a diplomat down a well!

Oh but let's just go ahead and ignore the whole brutally enslave your Greek brothers and sisters thing. Wouldn't want that to spoil our rosy image of them, eh?

Rank #19: 064 - Carthage

Podcast cover
Read more

Carthage always seems to take a backseat in history to another big player in the Mediterranean. It could be because it's really tough to find solid writing on them...but hey, when has fact and evidence ever stopped this podcast! So we stretch things a bit and talk about events that may or may not have ever existed...whatever! Onwards to Carthage, with a very special guest introduction by Dominic Perry of the Egyptian History Podcast!

And fellow gamers out there does this music sound familiar? If it does head to www.jeffvandyck.com and show some support to an amazing composer!
