A fast-moving history of the western world from the ancient world to the present day. Examine how the emergence of the western world as a global dominant power was not something that should ever have been taken for granted. This podcast traces the development of western civilization starting in the ancient Near East, through Greece and Rome, past the collapse of the Western Roman Empire into the Dark Ages, and then follows European and, ultimately, American history as the western world moved into a dominant world position.

Customer Reviews

Good storytelling

Appeals to all ages. My 12 year old son enjoys it.
Sound mastering not so hot- sometimes the "p"s and "b" sound like my speaker is going to explode, but if I turn it down then I can't hear quite so well.
Also, pronunciation of a variety of names, Ancient Greek, for example is not what I'm used to hearing. similar with many familiar words.
Other than these small issues, podcast is very entertaining, moves along quickly and makes the subject approachable for all ages. Love it.
Would love a bio on Adam Walsh to know his qualifications and primary sources.

It's History!

Another angle of the story on various stories in history, currently its on ancient Roman history, not as indepth as the History of Rome but has different sources and views on similar matters. Worth adding to the collection, if you are into History.


Good companion to other more focused history podcasts.
