If you like history podcasts, Dan Carlin's stuff is very good and informative.

If you like more easy to listen to stuff, this is good

RTE makes me scratch me head in wonder. . .
The Diarmaid Ferriter radio program on Sunday mornings "What If" was a great program. Running for a hour over 2 or 3 seasons 2004 - 2006 at about 10 programs a season, the program looked at examples of Speculative History in Ireland.

The programme s were archived on the station's site for ages. But now alas are gone.

You could sign up to Amazon and get a week's (month?) Subscription for FREE. Little to watch on Amazon Prime (streaming service) except Ridley Scott's tv adaptation of Philip K. Dick's "The Man in the High Castle" (speaking of Speculative History). But podcast-wise, as part of the package you get to download for free one E-Book from audible (owned by amazon).

Hardcore History - Dan Carlin. The World War One series sheds a terrifying perspective on the war and changed my world view a good bit.

The Joe Rogan Podcast is entertaining as well depending who is being interviewed.

Thanks all.

I have Dan Carlin and In Our Time ( I always think Melvyn Bragg needs his adenoids out).

And mad things like " No such thing as fish" And Casefile.

There is just so much out there isn't there. Glad of your pointers.

Mike Duncan's "The History of Rome" is brilliant.

"The Cycling Podcast" with Lionel Birnie, Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe is very good if it's a topic you have an interest in.

"In Our Time", Melvyn Bragg (BBC Radio 4) can also be very good.

BBC4 and World Service have a great selection of podcasts.

If you like history, I spent a good but enjoyable while making my way through the History of Rome podcasts (gradually takes one through, in bite-sized chunks, from the founding of the Roman Republic, to the Empire, with all its fascinating great and horrible characters to its eventual disintegration). The guy who put this together did a great job. He has a more recent series on Revolutions that I've been meaning to get around to.

Newstalk's "Talking History" is also pretty good (though I was surprised to read that its host "Patrick Geoghan" is taking a break to become an advisor to the new Taoiseach; it's not called radio "blue shirt" for nothing I guess! :) ).

This may interest you.
She is quite extreme but very brave IMO.

Her website is quite interesting too.
