This is a review of the Revolutions podcast hosted by Mike Duncan.
For those of you who have followed along with the Find That Pod newsletter, you’ll know I have featured, perhaps, an inordinate amount of history podcasts. I can’t help it. I love the topic, and I’ve probably read more history books than any other genre.
So when I first came across the Revolution podcast, back in edition #25 of the newsletter, I knew I had found a show that I would go on to listen to for as long as new episodes were made. Well, this podcast finally ended at the end of 2022, but since it remains one of the finest history podcasts anywhere, I’ve decided to give it a proper review.
Revolutions is an in-depth exploration of the world’s most significant historical, yep, you guessed it, revolutions, and it is incredibly informative and engaging.
Mike Duncan is an exceptional host who was also responsible for the History of Rome podcast, and his expertise on the subject matter is evident in every episode. His delivery is clear and concise, and he has a talent for making complex topics accessible to even the most novice listener. His ability to weave a compelling narrative of the events leading up to each revolution is remarkable.
The podcast covers a range of significant historical events, including the French Revolution, American Revolution, Russian Revolution, Iranian Revolution, and Haitian Revolution, to name a few. Each revolution is explored in-depth, and listeners are given a thorough understanding of the events leading up to each event and their impact on the world.
I particularly enjoyed the episode on the French Revolution, which is a topic that I had studied in school but had forgotten much of the details. Mike Duncan’s review of the French Revolution was incredibly informative, and I learned a great deal about the events leading up to the revolution, as well as the aftermath.
The Revolutions podcast has a strong presence on Reddit, with its own community, where listeners can engage with each other and discuss the various revolutions and episodes in more detail. The community is incredibly active and welcoming, and it’s a great place to connect with other history buffs.
Overall, I highly recommend the Revolutions podcast to anyone interested in history or wanting to learn more about significant historical events. But be prepared; like Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History, this history podcast is not for the faint of heart or for the faint of being able to listen to many hours of historical detail.
The Revolution podcast is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a podcast that will educate and entertain you. Whether you’re interested in the French Revolution, the American Revolution, or any other significant historical events covered, you will surely learn something new and fascinating. And with the podcast’s extensive archive, you’ll have thousands of hours of listening pleasure ahead of you.
