BackStory 

BackStory
BackStory with the American History Guys is a nationally syndicated, hour-long, weekly public radio show hosted by renowned U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh. We're based in Charlottesville, Virginia at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. Each week we take a topic that people are talking about and explore its roots in American history. Through stories, interviews, and conversation with our listeners, we turn the things Americans take for granted inside out. And we have a lot of fun. — BackStory

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History 

Dan Carlin
In "Hardcore History" the very unconventional Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", outside-the-box way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This is a difficult-to-classify show that has a rather sharp edge. It's not for everyone. But the innovative style and approach has made "Dan Carlin's Hardcore History" a New Media hit. — Dan Carlin's Hardcore History
 
 

History According to Bob 

History According to Bob
Professor Bob tells the fascinating stories of history's people, places, and cultures. — Bob Packett
 
Cabf735ce7b8b4471ef46ea54f71832d
Bob's relentless! He's a Missouri-based college history teacher whose show has been going for ages and he clearly has a huge passion for his chosen topic of professorship. He'll tend to pick a theme (e.g. a particular war or individual) and then run a whole series of shows around it. His style is laid-back and he'll often see the lighter side of things, while keeping the show firmly on-topic. While Bob has a lot of time for US history, particularly Civil War, he's really done a fantastic job over the years covering the whole gamut of times and places. — Michael Mahemoff, 1 year ago

History of the Christian Church 

History of the Christian Church
Communio Sanctorum is Latin for “The Communion of Saints.” This podcast Communion Sanctorum is a weekly podcast on the History of the Christian Church. Church History can be a complex and confusing subject with endless lists of names, dates, and issues. The podcast is an attempt to give believers a popular and non-academic review of church history in a manageable format with episodes that are under a half hour. While the Latin phrase Communio Sanctorum has been in use for centuries, the German pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s dissertation was titled Sanctorum Communio. Written at the age of only 21, the book is a monumental tome describing Bonhoeffer’s ideas on the work of the Spirit in the Church building a community of the redeemed. — Lance Ralston

Academic-style weekly programme from the BBC, covering the history of one topic each week. The topic could be an individual, an event, or a cultural movement. Guest selections make the show remarkable, as they are articulate subject matter experts who overview the topic before Melvyn Bragg guides them through its evolution.
