any advertisements whatsoever ruin the podcast for me.
definitely not a knock on you, probably just the podcast host app, but your episodes are all out of order past about half way through volume 3. not sure if you're able to do anything about that, but it would be helpful if they were in the right order. other than that, great work!!!!
I love this podcast, thanks so much for undertaking this project! I do have a comment that's pretty irrelevant since it's been so long since these episodes were created. It would seem to me that you mean stationary, not sedentary. It's a bit distracting for me every time I hear it, because I don't think you could make an argument that these people were in fact sedentary. That seems to be a relatively recent thing.
I absolutely love your podcast, and so does my brother. The only trouble is that I will never reach the end as I can't stop listening to all the pre-history, over and over and over. I dropped history 22 years ago at GCSE as we did agriculture and it just seemed to be memorising pointless dates and ever since I've been really into history. I may look into studying it with the OU if they have good options. I tell everyone you are the number one podcast for history and The Fall of Civilisation Podcast is number two. keep on doing what you do so well. Alex.
I've been history lover since playing Age of Empires as a child and I've been a listener for just about a year now and I've only caught up during the latest round of unscripted podcasts. I discovered your podcast during a very difficult period of my life and I'd just like to give my thanks for the help it gave me and for the work you continue to do. You've reaffirmed and expanded my knowledge of history and I cannot wait to see how the podcast grows. 10/10

Hello Chris, I am crazy about your podcast. I'm so glad I came a cross this one. I have listened to volumes 1 and 2 twice! From far my favorite podcast together with the history of English. Thank for sharing so much knowledge. Mélanie from France
Fantastic work Chris, very well researched and always an engaging listen.
just started listening and am enjoying learning. Thanks.
Chris, I was so delighted this morning when I checked Castbox for new podcasts of HOTW and discovered that Episode 1 of Vol. 3 is out. I have been avoiding HOTW withdrawal by listening to the unscripted shows, but I am so glad Vol. 3 is now underway. As with all your episodes, Episode 1 of Vol. 3 is expertly presented. I enjoyed it thoroughly and am looking forward to more. Thanks for all the hard work that i know must go into the HOTW podcast. Eric Young (proud HOTW Podcast Illuminati member)
Great podcast, was looking for a way to learn about history and think I've found it.
Fantastic podcast series. I have always loved learning about history, and have given up watching "Normal" TV in favor of documentaries. I have had a more consise and structured learning experience listening to this podcast, then watching nearly 10 years of YT videos. Chris does a fantastic job of explaining historical events, and the most impressive thing is he states opposing viewpoints historians have relating to historical events. Chris is also very clear about what is speculation, based on available facts, compared to what can be proven. The only negative criticism I have, is in reponse to an episode when Chris explains his lack of "credentials" and he doesn't want that to distract from the information he is providing. That, in my opinion, is exactly what makes this series stand out more then most. Academic credentials, tend detract from looking at all viewpoints, unfortunately. Anybody with even a slight interest in history, I believe would enjoy this series and season 2 episode 10 should be required listening for people. Thanks for your time and effort in producing this podcast Chris.
hahaha you're assessment of fertility goddesses fails to notice that worship of the goddess was the first religion with only a minor role for men 😂😂😂. Men didn't even know how reproduction happened. Women obviously understood and put that knowledge to use first. We bled but didn't die. New humans were spawned from our bodies. We likely seemed super human. No men needed, as far as they knew.
CHRIS: PLEASE DON'T EVER APOLOGIZE FOR A "LONGER THAN USUAL" PODCAST EPISODE! YOU ARE AMAZING & I COULD LISTEN FOREVER. Thank you so much for all your hard work, time & effort constructing this remarkable podcast.
THIS IS THE BEST PODCAST!!! CHRIS IS SO KNOWLEDGEABLE & HIS NARRATIVE STYLE IS EXCEPTIONAL. I subscribe to several history casts & this one is my favorite. I HIGHLY recommend it!
What a fantastic resource! When I first found this podcast, I found it so engaging that I was compelled to listen to the entire series in sequence, over the course of a few days. Each episode is so packed with information, I've listened to most of them more than once. Chris is a fantastic presenter and a truly calming presence. I would have loved to have had professors like him back when I was in university. I can highly recommend this show to any person who feels that their knowledge of the progress of human civilization might have some blind spots. Very enlightening!
I am consistently amazed at how informative your podcast is. I found you on Castbox and am now into Volume 2. I listen every day. Keep up the good work! Eric from California.
