Thank you for making the history of my country so interesting! I wish you were there when I was learning history at school ( it was so boring!). I can sense your love and respect for our history.

I stumbled upon this podcast by chance and got hooked on to it immediately. I respect and love that the narrator tells us how dependable/ credible the source is for each of the pieces of information he gives. You know right away that he’s trying to be as unbiased and as true to the story as is...Read full review »

I feel sorry for a Brit trying to pronounce Indian names. That being said, the research is well done and the info well delivered.

This is not The History of India. This is a collection of rambling mostly antidotal tales about India’s past. I went through this for 90 days, hoping that today would be the day that he starts using dates to apply some cause and effect, or failing that, he would just move about India region by...Read full review »

Very hard to find good resources for India history this is very informative, looking forward to other regions covered specifically during this time protest in India maybe something covering the importance of farming in Punjab and Indian history

This podcast is so beautifully structured that one can actually create a visual map of the geography and the events of that time. I got hooked onto this podcast in the very first minute of the first episode. There are a lot of people pointing out the pronunciation for the Hindi/Sanskrit words;...Read full review »

Great podcast! I love history but didnt know anything about Indian history yet. Especially early history I really enjoy learning about. You have a great way of narrating and its very educational.
Erik Nyez via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 08/20/20
This is such an achievement as a podcast. If you enjoy history, this is definitely worth a listen. The host does a fantastic job of telling a history that spans centuries and the varied Indian cultures. He discusses how changes in power affects the telling of the history and addresses the impact...Read full review »

This podcast is a gem. The author does real history, tells real stories from India. I really hope this podcast takes off.
Vapnij via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/28/20
This is what could be called the labor of love. It is one and it feels like one. Keep up the good work. As for the pronunciation part, it is pathetic at places, especially when the word in question acquires a different avatar of its own. But the story makes it all worth it!!

Had the great opportunity of visiting India just prior to the COVID pandemic. Giving this podcast an opportunity to unwind the complex histories that make up the vast and various areas of India. This may take a while....

It’s been enlightening to familiarize with history again after drudging through oh my god boring in school. And love the creators effort to be neutral and sympathetic unlike earlier historians. The direct from source is such an amazing device to learn about the priorities of people in those days....Read full review »

Hi Professor, haven’t heard a new podcast in while- missing your historical puns - give us a hint when we can expect the next one
Chitkhoj via Apple Podcasts · India · 03/06/20
Venkateshwra supbrabatham is not part of the Vedic corpus, it was composed in the 15th century by Anantacharya. So, please do a favor and fact check; not anything that’s composed in Sanskrit is part of Vedic corpus nor it’s ancient.
Nambiandan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/20
A thoroughly excellent history podcast 💛
Blue_Candle via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 01/06/20
You’ve really worked hard for this podcast. It’s awesome, yet like everyone’s saying - “Hindi and Sanskrit Pronunciation is a bit awkward”. I know it’s really tough for non-natives to speak Pure Hindi. Never mind. Good Job! ))))

Hey kit Shekhar Sehgal from New Zealand, thoroughly enjoy your series! When’s the next episode coming out?
shekharnz via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 10/03/19
I’m generally very skeptical of histories of ancient India because of how many agendas there are about the subcontinent’s past, left, right or centre. This podcast has so far been an absolute destroyer of my skepticism. Kit Patrick’s generous and respectful inclusion of original sources means...Read full review »

This podcast made me truly enjoy ancient history, a subject I had always considered to be dead and obsolete. The narration is brilliant and the content extremely relevant. It gives you the experience of journeying through the past and brings ancient India to life, replete with its passionate...Read full review »

I am a history buff. I have listened to a lot of history podcasts on topics ranging from Rome and Britain to China. This is by far the best podcast. Kit Patrick’s love for Indian history is apparent. His knowledge is complemented by a really fun and likeable personality. Kit rocks!
Kris5385 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/19
This is a well explained, simple and lucid survey of the subject with many references to primary sources that one can look up and read for themselves
snowboardsurfergloop via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/10/19
I have just recently started listening to this podcast and it is one of the most interesting and well structured podcast I’ve come across. Thanks to you, years of heavy ancient history are easy to listen to and fun to hear about. 😊
Nim.7 via Apple Podcasts · India · 05/14/19
If the history of India does not start pre Ishvaku clan then how can a podcast claim to speak about history of India? If Ram is conveniently considered mythological then how can the speaker introduce Mohammad later claiming he wasn’t mythical too? Too many inconsistencies overall in the...Read full review »

One of the best topic-specific history podcasts around. The treatment of ancient history is complete and reflects contemporary findings. Lots of fun, easy to listen to.

Great podcast!!
IktovianShieldAnvil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/31/18

Where is kit Patrick? It’s almost 3 months when last pod came?
rbhadaur via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/18
This is the best podcast I have ever heard. Kit explains eveything in spectacular clarity. He also adds bits of humour in between which makes it even more interesting. The podcasts are helping me to undestand ancient India better. Thank you Kit. You are doing a great job.

I’ve been following this podcast for a while now and use it for my ancient history preparation for the civil service examination. The choice of using Pataliputra as an anchor for the narrative is brilliant and makes it easy to locate oneself in the history of a vast and ancient civilisation. Many...Read full review »

I like this podcast. The narrator has great enthusiasm. Also @people getting worked up over accents and pronounciations: one should overlook such trivialities because us Indians also make mistakes about other Indian cultures. Also in history all that matters is the central idea. Hence I like...Read full review »

The narrator weaves scenes of yore with an enthusiastic and beautiful narration. A wonderful source to know ancient India as closely as one can imagine.
willow bly via Apple Podcasts · India · 12/11/17
As a fan of History of Rome, Hardcore History, Common Sense, and History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps, this is by far the best. The scope, sequence, length, and depth are perfect for an introduction to this vital source culture
D.r.Baker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/09/17
This podcast is full of the high quality history more people in the West should be listening to.

you yourself mentioned it that the stories of ancient india are not coherant - That is a very single evidence that ancient India was not a single country.

A topic that many Americans could learn more about - including myself, an ABCD. But beyond the topic the narrative is organized but still has enough tangents so that it's not just a list of kings - he brings the history alive A GREAT podcastRead full review »
