News about the past, in a podcast. Every two weeks, the History News Show delivers history news that’s relevant to you. Jordan presents a magazine-style podcast where he selects the most recent news about history, archaeology, museums, commemorations, and so much more, served with the added bonus of an ever so-slight French accent!

A new favorite!
The presentation is engaging, and the magazine-style content is reliably interesting. I hope there will be many more episodes to come!
My own personal Google Genie!
Life is so sweet! I no longer have to spend an hour or two searching out news pertaining to historical topics like ancient ruins or archeological digs, and more. I now have my own personal search assistant, Jordane Labarussias to find the news that interest me and narrate it to me while I drive about during the day! How awesome is that!! This is a fantastic podcast touching on all things historical that have recently made the news, including new books, scientific finds and things of political and social significance. Enjoy!
