Ghosts of the Ostfront - Eastern front WWII - 4 episodes.

Death Throes of the Republic - Fall of the Roman republic and the rise of the Roman empire. - 6 Episodes

Radical Thoughts - The two 20th century Red Scares in the USA

Wrath of the Khans - The rise of the Mongol Empire - 6 episodes (15 hours or so) - Best series ever.

Blueprint for Armageddon - 6 episodes - WWI in all its horror, including the politics behind the scenes.

King of Kings - 3 episodes - The rise of the Persian Empire until the fall to Alexander - including all the ones preceding it.


Just a few and a little light listening to get you started.
Prophets of doom was the first one of his I listened to and was hooked after that. All his podcasts are awesome, but prophets of doom is good to start off with because it’s a single episode.


Blueprint for Armageddon is his best imo.

Thanks heaps fellas, keen to get stuck into them.

Funny enough I brought blueprint for Armageddon on Saturday for a mate after bending his ear about it so much on Friday.

There’s usually a few free episodes up on the podcast app, I’m guessing it’ll be his latest series on Japan and their involvement in WW2. It’s pretty epic.

Actually saying it’s just about Japans involvement in WW2 doesn’t do it justice. It starts well before that with the samurai culture and the amazing transformation the Japanese went through after realising the world was moving too far ahead of them technologically. Really is incredible.

Republican debate now a no brainer. Send them to the annals of history where they belong.

They don't really bother me, couldn't care less actually. The church on the other hand....
THIS!!

The church, sex trafficking as a whole, child P….. all boil my blood

I saw a TikTok of a girl explaining how she nearly got trafficked. She got a phone call from a random number and he was like “hey I remember a couple of weeks ago at a college party at Michigan state (the college she goes to) I left my phone in your car when you dropped me home” she got red flag because she never lets anyone in her car and didn’t even recognise the person. He starts to list random names when she asks who ‘they’ were with and he also proceeds to list her last name which she doesn’t say anything to. He keeps telling her “could you please just check the front seat now, I think it’s down there” and it was like midnight too.

On the sheer numbers of victims, I reckon Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s cronies in Sinjar (and much of the rest of the former Isis territory) would be many multiples beyond Epstein and co.
