This podcast is nothing more than uncritical derivative drivel from real works by real historians. There is zero actual analysis of the reliability of sources that this person simply parrots and paraphrases. Furthermore, some repeated word pronunciations are so unnecessarily distorted as to...Read full review »

Najlepszy podcast historyczny jaki znam. Świetnie opowiedziana historia Rzymu z porządnym wejściem w szczegóły i pozwalająca zrozumieć procesy. Przesłuchałem go więcej niż raz.

I like your show and Rome. 🎖🎖🎖🎖🥇🥇🥇🏆🏆🏆 I am almost done ✅ and I also like revolutions. If I could I would give a lot more than five stars ✨.

I don’t know what the five stars are for, very hard to get engaged with someone who doesn’t get involved in the matters pertaining to what he’s reading.

I have almost no people who have been as influential on how I think about history as Mike has, just an outstanding entertainer and historian and has made me dive into history in a way I never did before.

As anyone who’s listened to history podcasts for more than a few years knows well. The history of Rome is one of the critical genre defining podcasts. That so many history podcasters begin their journeys by emulating Mike Duncan’s style, before they find their own voice, is testament to the...Read full review »

Just finished the series and I was blown away! Thank you, Mike, for all your time and effort put into this highly knowledgeable endeavor. The lives and deaths of Julius Cesar and Augustus have always been of interest to me but I was ignorant to the rest of the mighty empires other history. I’m...Read full review »

What a trip! Thank you for all the effort that went in to making this series. It explained so much about the Roman world to me. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

Interested in Rome? This is the best end to end coverage out there.
k9mac via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/20
Amazing history podcast that I judge all others against. Relistened to the entire series twice
mageorwedgee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/20
I’m surprised the podcast is rated 5 stars. The history of Rome is fascinating however Mike goes above and beyond to discredit history itself. He asks if Romulus even existed and claims its impossible to believe all that he did. Formed the army, built the structure of the city. Then he goes...Read full review »

A brilliant story told very well, I expect I will come back to listen again more than a couple times

Even after a decade it’s still the best history podcast have listened to it countless time and still discovering new things
horrible honkey 843 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/20
The title says it all, I have listened to the whole thing twice and probably again some day

Incredibly informing and enjoyable. Binge worthy!
Georgie Mk II via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 08/18/20
Nearly a decade later and I still go back to listen. That’s the highest praise I can give any medium. LOVE THIS POD

Mike is the history teacher every child deserves. And adult for that matter.
Doebiewoebie via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 08/16/20
Very in depth and detailed and highly recommended by my own educator, however it would be so much more enjoyable if it had transcripts. Just my personal opinion! I find it difficult to learn via audio alone and this would have been a function that could help me (and perhaps the hearing impaired...Read full review »

What a great treat to walk down centuries w Mike. Thank you so much. I am hooked and addicted to his work. I believe the Mexican revolution is also by him which I listened to before this. Also great.
Arjunator1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/20
After so many accolades for the show I was thoroughly looking forward to this podcast. While it is good, the accolades oversold me. Mike does a decent enough job relating the history in general terms. However, he has an obvious disdain for the history itself. Venturing beyond what any reasonable...Read full review »

of The History of Rome and all I can say is I WISH THERE WERE MORE! Mike Duncan has taken the history of Rome and brought it to life. I can’t wait to delve into his other works.
DanH131 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/20
Listened to the whole thing many years ago. Very nice podcast.
Fusebox2011 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/20

I’m 3/4 of the way through and getting apprehensive of what to do when I’m out of THOR episodes.
Thisnut via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/10/20
This is a great podcast. I love it a lot. Listen to Revolutions too because I like that podcast a bit more even because it’s extremely thorough.
Malachy K via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/20
If you’re going to create a podcast about Roman history, you better brush up on your Latin, because “Pompee” and “Cannee” are just not going to be acceptable. I know no one is perfect, but he didn’t even try. I can forgive mistakes, but lack of effort is impossible to ignore.
AphextWinster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/20
Absolutely legendary podcast! I‘ve always wanted to learn more about Roman history but I found the literature too dull however Mike’s narration is done in such an encapsulating way. It’s extremely well rehearsed and he doesn’t get sidetracked or bogged down in boring and minute details that...Read full review »

Look no further if you want to find a fascinating, educational and often humorous history of Rome. The speaker does a great job researching the important parts of Roman history and communicates it in a very entertaining manner. I can’t recommend this podcast enough.

Humor comes about 20 episodes in and Mike really hits on point his telling of the story of Rome. Fascinating and entertaining.

Thank you for this wonderful journey of history.
R Marais via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 06/25/20
I listened to this years ago when it first came out and thought it was amazing. Years later I’ve come back and loved it just the same. Wonderful humour and paced perfectly to keep your interest without getting too bogged down in the details. Great work mike.
Stuie1975 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/20/20
Pleaseeee reorganize your backlog ! I have no idea where to start this podcast. The dates aren’t in order and sometime they are going top to bottom by date and sometimes they are the reverse .
tews1207 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/20
I enjoyed listening to the series. I found the most interesting aspects to relate to things other than attaining and maintaining power. With this in mind the first eighty or so were most interesting.
PG Queen of the suburbs via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/16/20
The History of Rome is absolutely fantastic! I listen almost everyday at work. Very interesting, cleverly wrote and the added bits of humor makes it addicting. I only wish I wasn’t so late to the game.

Great podcast! Very informative and interesting!

I just listened to the whole thing... I’m speechless amazing
Zamboni8182 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/20
After listening to Hamilton, I wanted more history. It’s impressive how much history happened before any of were born, and Mr Duncan speaks about it eloquently. He, along with Lin-Manuel Miranda have given me a bigger and better appreciation of history. So thank you for this. I’ve been listening...Read full review »

This is a great, easy to listen to and very educational podcast. I studied Latin for 3 years and Roman History and this guy is spot on. I have really enjoyed it. Wish he would do more. Scipio’s sister
