4 Great Podcasts: History Category

“Trial and error” seems to be the general theme of this blog. I loved the idea of offering a selection of “best podcasts” in a different category every month, but a month is nowhere near long enough to dig into a whole genre of podcasting. It’s hardly enough to get to know even a single podcast! Podcasting is a genre with very few limits, and a podcast that’s been going for a year or so can be pretty daunting to sink your teeth into when you’re coming in as a beginner. So instead of advertising this post as a definitive list of “best” podcasts in a certain genre, as if I’ve listened to  every podcast in this genre, and have no more to explore, this list is a mix of old favorites and promising new encounters that I found in the “history” section of the iTunes library. I hope they’ll pique your interest as much as they did mine.   At the same time, I leave it open that this list will be added to.  In fact, I hope it will! Happy listening!

Also, if you have any recommendations for great history podcasts, let me know in the comments or on Twitter https://twitter.com/sydneyonair.  I’d love to hear from you!

So, as far as this list, these are great podcasts to listen to if you’re interested in hearing about strange legends or brushes with the unknown.
