From Aeneas to the Fall of Constantinople (Now it’s Istanbul!)

As a part of my continuing series in novel and cool things to be excited about, there’s the antiquarian and cool: Lars Brownworth‘s podcast history of the Byzantine Empire through profiles of 12 Byzantine Rulers. It’s the perfect encore to Mike Duncan’s The History of Rome. (Also good: Isabelle Pafford’s History 106B course podcast, The Roman Empire.)

All three are available on Itunes: The History of Rome, The Roman Empire, and 12 Byzantine Rulers.

Now, does anyone know a good podcast on the Medici family?
