    Cool A highly recommended podcast for all you history fans out there

    So if you have any interest in Roman history, and you like podcasts, I highly recommend The History of Rome podcast. Completely free, and it is probably the most in-depth history of the Roman Empire I have ever heard, going from the early days of the city to the end of the Western Empire. It is also referred to as the gold standard in historical podcasts, and Im only halfway through the 179 episodes (which range from 15-30 minutes long) and I really love it, takes the sting out of being at work. It took him something like five years to finish, and now he is working on another podcast about different revolutions in history.

    Anyways, its free and on iTunes so its easy to download, and I highly recommend it!

    Thanks man. This will make sitting in the office much more interesting!

    I should also mention that Dan Carlin's Hardcore History series is also excellent. Some of them are free on iTunes. I personally love his series on Genghis Khan, which he finished, and his ongoing series on WW1. Really excellent stuff.

    Is there somewhere where you can download this all at once or am I being stupid?

    iTunes is your best bet I think.
