The AskHistorians Podcast showcases the knowledge and enthusiasm of the AskHistorians community, a forum of more than 400,000 history academics, professionals, amateurs, and curious onlookers. The aim is to be a resource accessible across a wide range of listeners for historical topics which so often go overlooked. Together, we have a broad array of people capable of speaking in-depth on topics that get half a page on Wikipedia, a paragraph in a high-school textbook, and not even a minute on the History channel. The podcast aims to give a voice (literally!) to those areas of history, while not neglecting the more common covered topics. Part of the drive behind the podcast is absolutely to be a counterpoint to other forms popular media on history which only seem to cover the same couple of topics in the same couple ways over and over again.

Customer Reviews

My favorite subreddit in a new podcast flavor!

/r/askhistorians quickly became my favorite subreddit after I discovered it a year ago. It has continually provided well-sourced and well-written answers to whatever question you may have. I've been a fan of history podcasts since I started listening to podcasts, and what is fantastic about this podcast is that it gives real historians to talk about something new every week. There is no one focus, and so we are getting to learn about hundreds of different subjects. I foresee a strong future for this show and I applaud the fine people of /r/askhistorians for being willing to put in the time and effort to bring such entertainment.

Great so far, hope it goes well!

I've always loved the AskHIstorians subreddit, but I spend my days listening to podcasts more than I browse the sub. This podcast is a great mashup of the two. The first episode is great, and I hope it continues to stay that way.


Write a title or subj not only an episode #

Other than that, good job
