The podcast focuses on the lives and times of great historical figures that have mostly fallen through the cracks of our collective memories. We may have heard of these people, but they don't get the attention that some do. Here, they get their due. http://almostforgotten.squarespace.com on Twitter: @thealmostforgot

Good topic, easy listen
Listened to 2 episodes so far; only reason not 5 stars is because the format and tone don't yet seem to have found their super original spot. It's all good, interesting, but still feels a bit like stories-Dan-Carlin-forgot. Which for those of us who like Hardcore History, this show is a great listen in the interminable gap between HH episodes. I like it.
content and style
Since Mike Duncan (of Revolutions and the History of Rome) recommended this podcast, I had pretty high expectations going in and I have not been disappointed. I really like this guy's style of story telling, he has a very unique cadence of speech and interesting turns of phrase. I love the Easter eggs like "ripe old age of a million" and "sick burn" that, if you are not paying attention, might get missed.
One of the things I especially like is that he locates the story he is about to tell within what is going on in the rest of the world. If he is talking about Rome or Venice, then we will learn about what is happening in South America and China as well. I find it so interesting to have that as a point of reference, especially if the story of the day takes place in an era less familiar to me.
Anyway, I'm hooked.
Well Presented and Interesting!
Very informative. Good choices.
