Hi there, the name's Chris and I hail from Utah. I'll be entering my senior year of high school this fall.I first became interested in history when one of the YouTube channels I watch produced a series of videos about the Punic Wars. From there, I searched for a history podcast about Rome, and found Hardcore History and The History of Rome. They made history seem so much more interesting than any class in school ever had, so I then searched out other history podcasts. From that, I found the China History Podcast, the Russian Rulers History Podcast and, of course, The British History Podcast. As a bit of a fantasy geek and someone with, near as I can tell, exclusively British ancestry I found The British History Podcast to be one of the better podcasts (completely unbiased). It doesn't hurt any that it has better production values and content than many of the others. I'm working to catch up on The British History Podcast, but it's going to take a while as I'm only up to episode 33.Outside of listening to podcasts, I'm a hobbyist graphic designer, I'm starting to learn a few programming languages, and I'm working my way through several tomes about history including, but not limited to: Alexander by Theodore Ayrault Dodge, The Wars of the Roses by Allison Weir, The Conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar and Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond.
Hi Chris! It sounds like you've got quite the collection of Podcasts to follow (and I'm flattered to be included with such an illustrious group of shows). Good luck with Senior year and welcome to the community!
