These are the best history podcasts I've found so far.
hosted by Dan Carlin
Podcast Summary: Hardcore History is a (very) long form podcast that tells famous historical stories in a captivating way. Carlin's enthusiasm for history shines through in each episode and he typically attacks topics in a series format. For example, his incredible series on Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire was six episodes and more than 9 hours in total. It's worth the time investment.
