    I'm new to podcasts. Are there more? Specially history ones. I only ask because I'm enjoying this so much and am nearly caught up.

    The History of Rome podcast is the classic history podcast.  It's now finished, so you can listen to the whole series as quickly or slowly as you want.  Episodes tend to be about 15-30 minutes, about the same length as Jamie's.  Anyway, it's very good and well-researched and I highly recommend it.  If you're interested in longer-form podcast episodes, check out Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast.  He only comes out with about 4 episodes a year, but they are about 3-4 hours long.  His more recent episodes are free, older ones cost a small fee but are well worth it.  Topics have included a wide variety of things, including the Mongol invasions, the downfall of the Roman Republic, a militant religious takeover of Munster, Germany in the middle ages, and the Spanish-American War.I'm also listening to The History of English which is an ongoing podcast that is a detailed history of the English language.I've also heard lots of good things about the following history podcasts, although I haven't listened to them yet.  The History of Byzantium continues on where the History of Rome podcast left off, although it is by a different podcaster.  Meanwhile, the guy who did The History of Rome is now doing a series about the histories of different revolutions, The Revolutions Podcast, which has covered the English and American revolutions so far and is now looking at the French Revolution.

    DonOntario got all the classics, but I have one that I've enjoyed History of the Crusades which starts around 1090 (right before the First Crusade) and seems to be concluding with what happens after King Louis' Crusade. It's very well done and well balanced, most of all for a topic where historical and modern bias could hijack the narrative.

    There are also a couple of series by the other Jamie (Jamie Redfern) – The Arab Spring, A History of Alexander Remastered, A History of Hannibal and he's got a similar sense of humour to Jamie Jeffers which is good.

    I 2nd missed in history. Its not as well researched as Jamies but you get a good view of historical events from a fairly high level.
