Hi all, I recommend this....my knowledge of ancient Greece came mostly from middle school history, the myths, the Iliad and the Odyssey and some knowledge of the plays, democracy, and the Plato,Socrates, Aristotle, Alexander thread. As a scientist I love the way Ryan as historian weighs theories fairly and cites evidence clearly.

However, he speaks very clearly, has pleasant intonation and varies his pitch nicely, so I find it good listening. I have only listened to the first 12 podcasts, but plan to stick with the whole series. (There are a few mispronunciations, such as the word "cavalry" being pronounced as "calvary" which has happened about five times so far).Read full review »

Heck, as a former Middle-School social studies teacher myself I'm learning plenty about the...Read full review »
