Hello everyone! For today’s post, I will be recommending a history podcast I recently found, The History of Byzantium. This podcast, narrated by Robin Pierson, views itself as a spiritual successor to The History of Rome, by Mike Duncan (which I have not listened to but have heard is excellent), and although I cannot comment on whether or not it succeeds in this respect, I can guarantee it does an excellent job in all other respects. The podcast has been going for three years, since 2012, and has currently reached as far as 811 CE. Though I have only currently listened as far as the death of Emperor Anastasius, I have found the story riveting, and am enjoying myself immensely, not to mention learning about a period of history that has always fascinated me.
