“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!
