The Twilight Histories is a podcast that should be listened to in the dark… Inspired by the Twilight Zone and Hardcore History, this show will leave you with a shiver down your spine. You are a time traveler sent to a strange and exotic land, sometimes historical, sometimes from an alternate thread in reality. You must somehow survive the Black Death, the Ice Age, Hannibal’s army, and many more of history’s exotic nightmares. So enter your time machine… if you dare.

Good first episode
This was a really interesting podcast. I enjoyed it lots, and it had plenty of atmosphere.
The approach was very different from most history podcasts. It was far more of a story with lovely background music (an excellent touch) than a more traditional history podcast. It didn't go into any real detail but it certainly touched an emotional cord.
Overall it made me feel like I was listening to a bard singing a history for me rather listening to a history lecture. It has lots of promise and I'm looking forward to another episode, but I'd like a good amount more detail in episodes to come.
A cross between science fiction and history.
I just listened to the "Rome Industrial" episode and was blown away. A really imaginative and interesting podcast. A cross between science fiction and history.
A new way of podcasting
A most interesting podcast I really enjoy the way that you are put in a time machine and experience history. A must recommend for those who are interested in si fi / history. I must suggest listening to Rome industrial!!!
