Two brothers telling the story of the Italian Unification, 1790-1870. Our story will start with a quick recap of Italian history from Roman times to 1790, then we'll slow down and examine the complex social, political, and economic themes as we cover the events of the Italian Unification.

An Interesting Subject....

This podcast approaches a subject most people have never given much thought about. As a big fan of history, I look forward to learning much more about Italian unification. From what I have heard so far, it sounds like an excellent podcast with much potential. I really look forward to hearing more great episodes fromt this podcast.

Well done, excited to learn more

No podcast is "The History of Rome" but this one is as close as I have found. I came to it because of Jamie Redfern's a history of Hannibal podcast. Something that goes under appreciated in history podcasts is the tone, tempo and enunciation of the podcasters. These two brothers are the best I've heard, non-Duncan division. As someone who has primarily focused on pre imperial history, this is an unknown topic that I look forward to learning about from these two.


Off to a marvelous start. They have a confident tone that bespeaks preparation that I don't always hear in history podcasts. I like that the hosts have compartmentalized the subjects into something resembling their areas of greater deftness. As for the subject matter, what a home run! I've often considered it somewhat confounding how this peninsula that once controlled almost all of Europe and the Mediterranean consumed itself in its own flames and stagnate, only to be content as a political football for centuries until it's eventual unification... and for what? Fortunately, I'm getting in on this one from the start, and I am very glad I am, as this is something that has nagged and nagged at me for ages...
