Enjoying your shows very much and learning a lot.
"Knowing history" makes such a difference in one's worldview of the present as well.
Many thanks.

Hey, I stumbled upon this website by some fortune that I'll consider as some sort of divine intervention. I haven't begun listening to the podcasts yet, but I'm sure I'll love it. This is exactly the sort of thing I've been looking for.
I'm not very well versed with history, especially Ottoman history. So I'd be extremely grateful if you could let me know where to start from. Thanks! :)

Hi, thanks for your work but seasons one and two have virtually disappeared since the last reorganisation of the site (the series division is not that practical I am afraid. Been looking for an episode for days!) even on soundcloud they require an awful amount of dig-out time! Could you please -please - reinstate on this page the complete list of old episodes before season 4?
Russell said…
New to site. I'm looking for an overview before diving into specifics themes. I.e. what was the Ottoman empire? When/how did it begin, development, to end. Please create a series. Thanks.
