Excellent and Entertaining Way to Learn Chinese History

Although there are a few history podcasts, the China History Podcast is the only one that focuses on the Middle Kingdom. The host, Laszlo Montgomery, is an amateur historian but, from the quality of his podcast, professional synthesizer and raconteur. He is able to take what certainly is a challenging subject because of Western unfamiliarity with Chinese names and culture, and turns it into an exciting, very listenable story. His output is amazing, having a full time job in publishing, he, nevertheless puts out a weekly podcast on a different aspect of Chinese history. HIs series on the Imperial Dynasties is a great way to start to understand China's past and present.


essential listening for beginners and old china hands alike. Lazlo gives thoughful, deep, and balanced, perspective on the other half of the world's history, about which 99% of westerners are oblivious. On many topics I where I thought I had a handle before, the show added surprising texture and detail for me. Always entertaining. Keep up the good stuff.

Informative, concise and entertaining

As someone with only a cursory understanding of Chinese history, I have listened to several podcasts and iTunesU lectures and read two books in advance of my 9 day trip to China this coming summer. Let me say unequivocally that NONE of the other resources came close to providing the wonderfully informative and very entertaining information found in The China History Podcast. After listening to all of the episodes at least once, I can honestly say that I have at least a reasonable grasp on this incredibly complex and detailed topic -- which will certainly make my upcoming travels that much more fulfilling and enjoyable. In short, thank you Laszlo for a job incredibly well done!!!
