Ancient Warfare Podcast

I enjoyed the discussion on light infantry - not a topic that I've looked at since studying classics at school. The sound quality, however, varies and at times in almost inaudible due to echos and feedback.

the format doesn

I tried this out as it was recommended on the otherwise excellent History Network podcasts, and because I am interested in the subject matter. As rather than following a narrative style, the podcast is presented as a discussion between several experts (3 as I recall). This is no doubt easier to produce, but not nearly as satisfying as listening to a structured analysis of a topic, where events and developments are presented in a logical sequence. To be fair in part this no doubt arises from the fairly broad topic headings which invite a debate - but because I am primarily interested in 'finding out about things' and no doubt overly conservative in how I like information presented, I find it off putting.

format and sound quality are wanting

Lovely idea, which is why I downloaded it. But you either need, IMO, to have a lecture about the topic, IOW an audio version of the article, or more of a "In Our Time" (Melvyn Bragg)-style approach where an intelligent lay-person in the chair tries to elicit important facts for the listener from the experts surrounding him. The roundtable discussion -- "you want to jump in here Fred?" -- means there is no real direction to the discussion, interesting though it is in parts. It also seems as though the discussion is taking place on a Skype conference call, and some of the audio is pretty poor, with a lot of clicks, hisses and occasional echoes. Great stuff, but it needs work.
[That's not my actual handle, above. it was part of another review!]
