The AskHistorians Podcast

By The AskHistorians Community

A podcast by history nerds for history nerds (and everyone else too). The AskHistorians Podcast features members of Reddit's AskHistorians community, as well as published academics, and experts for long-form 60-90 minute in-depth conversations about a topic of their research. Additionally, each podcast episode is accompanied by a thread in AskHistorians where the expert swings by to answer followup questions.
