Some additions:

The first is one of my favorites. I'm not sure why I didn't have it listed.

The Podcast History of Our World


Description: "Hey, I hear ya. You've always wanted to get into history. Maybe you're tired of getting low scores in Trivia Crack. Maybe you're iffy on whether Game of Thrones is real or not, I'm not judging. Bottom line though? You can't seem to muster up interest in for the subject because of...the flashbacks. High school history class. The droning lectures, the lack of context, that weird thing where even though it says 'world history' on your schedule, all the teacher does is talk about Northern Europe. Rough stuff...but there is hope. Welcome to The Podcast History of Our World."

Another I was missing. Dedicated to new user Sir Spacey:


History of the Papacy Podcast

Description: "This show will detail the biographies and interesting facts of the Papacy of Rome. It will start in the beginning, but will not go straight through. There will be many side tracks and detours along the way. We will investigate the backstreets of the Papacy where the tour normally doesn't go."

I am not sure I know podcasting is? Is it a live feed thing? This foum is global, so keep that in mind, for time zones.

Dave,
Thanks for the list. I knew most of them, but you provided me with four new ones.

Podcasts are prerecorded episodes that can be downloaded and listened to at any time. Many shows that air live (Like BBC's "In Our Time") are made available as downloadable podcasts.

The name derives from the fact that Ipods were the main gizmo that people used to download music and such early on, but it has stuck despite the platform independence of podcasts.

Apple folks tend to use the native Itunes app. I use an Android app called podcast addict (which probably describes me also).

You subscribe to a Podcasts feed and then when a new episode becomes available it shows up so you can stream or download it. You can also just go to the podcasts website and listen.

There has been an explosion in history podcasts the last few years and so I've been trying to get a handle on it by collecting them in one place. Well, now two places, including this forum.

How Jamaica Conquered the World


Description:"The small island of Jamaica has forged a new type of empire, an intangible realm of which there are no physical monuments. There is no official political or economic sphere of Jamaican influence but when it
comes to popular culture its global reach is immense, far exceeding the reasonable expectation for a nation of just over 2.7 million people.

For a nation that gained independence from the British only 50 years ago, Jamaicans have left their mark on music, sport, style and language around the globe and have become an international marker of ‘cool’.
Jamaican music has colonised the new and old world alike, its athletes break world records with impunity and youngsters the world over are incorporating Jamaican slang into their dialects. Despite this the country
has reaped no economic reward in return, unlike empires of old, and Jamaica still remains an economic pygmy. Jamaican influence has unconsciously spawned creative innovation around the globe and to this day it remains a country to be studied, celebrated, and demystified. Through the help of linguists, artists, musicians, designers, sports personalities, and historians we take a closer look as to how Jamaican culture conquered the world."

Also, some news. Fans of Dan Carlin's Hardcore History will be pleased to know there is a new episode:

The Destroyer of Worlds

What happens if human beings can’t handle the power of their own weaponry? This show examines the dangerous early years of the Nuclear Age and humankind’s efforts to avoid self-destruction at the hands of its own creation.
