15 Minute History is a podcast about World and US history, designed for historians and enthusiasts alike. This is a joint project of Hemispheres, the international outreach consortium at the University of Texas at Austin, and Not Even Past, a website with articles on a wide variety of historical issues, produced by the History Department at the University of Texas at Austin. This podcast series is devoted to short, accessible discussions of important topics in World History and US History. The discussions are conducted by the award winning faculty and graduate students at the University of Texas at Austin. Our topics are drawn from the World History and US History Standards—The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)—for K-12 social studies courses in Texas. They are meant to be a resource for both teachers and students, and can be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in history. For more information, visit our website!

Amazing show

15 Minute history is an incredible resource! A perfect podcast to listen to in the car or while cooking. I've learned so much!


It's a great idea - to have an extensive series of short presentations on history. But the talks and dialogs sound like these are young people repeating what a textbook says. There isn't a depth of understanding behind them. And small errors such as misuse of words reinforces the impression that they don't really know what they're talking about.


spoken in clear words love the subject great education love it enjoy listen to these when I am walking or bike riding and enjoy it great
