Podcasts on History/The 250th Posting

So this is my 250th posting on this blog. I must admit, when I started this about 5 years ago, I never thought I would of have made it this far. What started out as a simple exercise to help me shake the rust off my writing to better prepare me for grad school, has turned into a fun and enjoyable exercise for myself. This blog has actually helped me better development some of my ideas in audio and podcasting.

Which leads me to what my main focus of this posting. About two weeks ago I came across a very interesting article about the 'The Ten Best History Podcasts'. It was posted on a website I frequent on a regular basis.

What I really liked about this posting is 1) It doesn't say this is the best, or that is a best, because at the end of the day it is all subjective. And 2) the author does a great job of describing what each show is about. I actually went out and started listening to a few of the aforementioned shows. Overall not bad. I have to really give them a proper listen, but overall I think I found a few new programs to go to for inspiration.

Here's a link to the article: http://uproxx.com/life/best-history-podcasts-right-now-to-listen-to/
