Plenty of detail, Ryan’s tone can be a little monotonous and rigid at times, but the content is worth listening to. No frivolous modern politics or bending the facts to fit an agenda, Worth subscribing if you want to know about Ancient GreeceπŸ‘Œ

Good information but he’s kinda all over the place with a narrative. Can be very difficult to follow especially as he speaks really quickly and never takes pauses. It’s all very monotone and rushed and it makes it difficult to comprehend all he’s trying to say. Been following this show since the...Read full review »

I’m really enjoying the show and learning a lot. I’m studying modern Greek and so the history of some of the language has been very helpful. A+++

A previous reviewer commented on Greek pronunciation in this series. As a former student of Greek, I have a suggestion- find a comparable podcast in Classical or Koine Greek. Great series, snot nose reviewers can pound sand.

Captivating and thorough podcast on the subject, but as a Greek listener, I wish the host would spend a fraction of the time he spends researching and writing these episodes on learning correct pronunciation.

Ryan Stitt is a serial sexual harasser, and there is plenty of evidence of that from the many women he interacted with online. He has also flagrantly plagiarized from a number of sources, including textbooks by Sara Pomeroy. Do not support this man or his work if you value gender equity and...Read full review »

This is what seems to me to a very comprehensive general history of Greece, beginning before there was a Greece. Just nerdy enough to be very informative but also entertaining - well narrated moves along at a great pace.Excellent!

This is my favorite period of history but honestly the narrators delivery was just really hard for me to stick with. It’s not something I even knew I cared about until this podcast.

Most of what he talked about is very much in mirror to Donald Kagans Yale lecture on the Polis. Plagiarism is always wrong....Read full review »
