Talking History is history

One of my favorite podcasts is going on hiatus. (A podcast is basically a fancy word for a radio show that you can download to your MP3 player.) Talking History is produced by the Organization of American Historians and because of budget problems, they cutting funding for Talking History.

The host Brian LeBeau is the epitome of a great interviewer. He mostly stays in the background, giving the stage to the historian, but when he asks a question, you immediately feel like it’s a question that you would want to ask. He makes interviewing seem simple. It’s clear that not only has he read the work of the historian he’s interviewing, he understands the impact of their work. But most of all, the show is great because of the content. They choose great topics with great authors and historians. If you have any interest in history, go back and listen to their shows for the past couple years (which will remain up despite the hiatus). Hope the hiatus is short…

(Don’t forget to donate to their cause if you enjoy the content as much as I do)
