My Favorite Free Podcasts – History

I’m a huge fan of podcasts and podcasting.  I listen to podcasts about history, comedy, sports, entertainment, politics, education, etc.  Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll share links to my favorite podcasts with my readers.

My Favorite Free Podcasts – History

History According To Bob – Professor Bob releases a daily podcast.  Bob makes complex historical events easy to understand.  Listen for a week and you will be hooked.

Hardcore History – Dan Carlin talks about how the past and present are intertwined.  This podcast always makes me think – and I usually end up ‘googling’ for more information about whatever topic Dan talks about.

Military History Podcast – I’ve just started listening to this podcast.

Binge Thinking History – Tony has an awesome British accent and unique insight.

My History Can Beat Up Your Politics -  In an age of ‘ground breaking’ stories every 24-hour news cycle, it’s good to have a little perspective.

  1. I recommend 60 Second Science, and 60 Second Psych…

    And for a laugh, The Onion has a video podcast and an audio podcast (different material on each) that keep me smiling.

  2. Another history podcast (my own) is Historyzine which you’ll find at
    There are reviews of other history podcasts, linguistic history trivia bits all topped off with the current special feature which is the early 18th century European war; The War of the Spanish Succession
